Place Cards } Hummingbirds

Anyone who knows me knows that I am an animal fanatic.  Most creatures large and small (no spiders or bugs, thank you) and that hummingbirds hold a very special place in my heart.  My grandparents always fed hummingbirds with little red feeders when I was growing up.  My lazy summer daze were spent by their pool, sunning, snacking and watching those little birds.  I have always associated hummingbirds with with memories of my grandparents.  

So now, I continue the family tradition of feeding hummingbirds myself.  I love watching them buzz in for a quick treat - buzz around - and buzz off.  So adorable.  I swear I could watch them all day.

Ahh, ha and then along came my creative Jersey bride and her talented planner sister with the perfect hummingbird project.  600 of these little birdies flew off for NJ this morning.  The arrangement planned for these hummingbird place cards is going to be magnificent to say the least.  (Stay tuned!)  I just couldn't resist posting a little peak at a blank birdie.

Birds are roughly 3x5 and tented so that they can stand on their own (or with a little mossy support) - the guest names will be written in calligraphy on the front of the bird and the guest's table location written on the inside.  Oh, so tweet!

Die cuts are an amazing way to create a little unique twist to the same ol' boring rectangle place cards.  What shapes?  Only limit is your imagination.
