Wedding Seating Cards

Originally, I really did not want to do a seating chart. I firmly believed that adults should be able to figure out seating by themselves. However, after hearing about some weddings where that went horribly awry, I broke down and decided to create a seating chart. 
I decided to buy some small plastic animals to hold the seating cards. I started by cutting slits in their backs for where the cards would sit.

Obviously, this left the animals looking a little weird and I didn't like that they were all different colors. So next I spray painted them all silver!

 After they were all dry, I noticed that some of the animals became a bit indistinguishable once they were all silver. So I sharpied on needed details.

All 100 done!

Next I used my Sizzix Die Cutter to cut out the Seating Cards. I added some extra width to the cards by including decor tape on the bottoms of the cards. Additionally, I used clear labels to put peoples names and tables onto the cards (I would never trust my handwriting to this!).
