I've previously expressed my lack of interest in the stage of cutting fabric before sewing. Well, I may have a greater appreciation for it after this project...
My hubby-to-be and I are having an outdoor wedding at the end of this month, so we've been making programs. Because the weather may be crazy hot, we loved the idea of a panel fan program. (I also liked the cootie catcher programs which show up when you search google, but we couldn't fit enough information on them)
I found this great website with downloadable templates for fan panels: http://www.wedding-paper-products.com/Fan-Programs.php We're using the smaller template which fits 3 panels per page. And, with the "light" lines.
Each of our programs contains 6 panels, so we have about 1200 to cut!

This picture shows just shy of 100 panels (turned upside down)... we made a big dent in the pile to be cut this weekend, and have about 650 panels done.
I don't think I'll mind cutting fabric anymore.
