At our post-elopement afterparty, we asked all our ridiculously creative friends to customise a paper bird for us. The end results were gobsmackingly gorgeous.
One of my favourites is the skeleton/unzip bird, which has a zip running down the centre on one side, and on the other, a teeny bird skeleton. We also had beaded birds, smashed pottery birds with sparkler tails, several feathered birds, tin birds, a burned book bird (very Fahrenheit 411) and genius robot birds various.
The template was designed by South African artist Heather Moore especially for us and she's given us permission to share the love, so if anyone wants to use our idea for their own celebrations, you can get the template from my flickr site.
