Lady Bug and Bumble Bee place card holders
Aren't these just the cutest little things? I made these out of polymer clay, with a LOT of trial and error (and many headless ladybugs and bumble bees). I created the little slit in the back of each of them to hold place seating cards, which can also serve a double purpose after the party...they can also hold a photo or a recipe card.
This was my first item in The Shower Planner etsy shop, and I had an order almost immediately! A woman purchased a bunch for her daughter's birthday party. Each guest had a ladybug at their plate, with a picture of the little girl to take home as a keepsake. She also used the ladybugs to display cards on the food buffet table that said what all of the dishes were. The second picture is the "ladybug army" right before they were packaged and shipped out.
