As soon as I opened the fan I felt a little dissapointed. The wooden handle and frame is sturdy however the fans I received today barely have any feathers on them. If you want what you see in the photo online you will need to purchase a bag of feathers also. I love craft projects so thats alright but if I had know I would have bought cheaper fans and added feathers, adhesive gemstones and a touch of glitter. After completing this review I'm going to go order some feathers. I uploaded a pic so you can see ehat they really look like. There is more fabric then fan and they are completely see through.

Good tea party favors
These were a very inexpensive way to decorate and then give as party favors for a tea party. I used a large bowl and double layered the open fans around the edges with flowers. I also used these in a swan arrangement, then when the party was over, I gave them for favors. They are a soft white to slightly off-white feather color, fluffy and very sturdy fans. I would caution when you open them up, they only open one way correctly. So if you feel like you are forcing them open, try it the other direction. I accidentally ruined one forcing it open. Overall, the ladies loved them and a good value.

Fabulous - just what I wanted
We are doing a Paris themed wedding on a budget, of course. Since it is in July and the ceremony will be outside, we wanted to provide fans for the guests. We were going to make them ourselves, but once we saw these feathery fans, we were sold. We could not have made fans for less $. Also, we got some extra to use as part of the flower/table center pieces.
