Wishing tree tags birds or doves


 This is my newest thing: wishing tree tags. There are so many things that I don't know about weddings - probably more than I think. 
A client asked for some wishing tree tags and i didn't know what those were. So I Googled it. And now, after about 2 months I came up with these birds, that I like very much but takes me ages to make. They are double, so lots of space to write a message on. 
First I started with the paper feathers (I don't know exactly when I had the idea with the paper feathers) and now I gave a body to the feathers! They look very delicate.
Now, it's funny how one thing leads to another. In fact I was playing with a plastic bottle, thinking that I want to recycle it somehow. And I thought why not a mobile hanging with birds, for the garden. So, I started cutting and working and the birds were way too simple. And then I added some plastic sheet feathers and they looked well. And that is how my wishing tree bird/doves tags were born!
