Beautiful and graceful, swans are an age-old symbol of love. From weddings to the Tunnel of Love, swans are featured far and wide as an emblem of romance and relationships. Our metallic paper swan decorations make for the loveliest addition to any celebration of the heart. Quick and easy to create, your guests will fall in love with this simply elegant decor! Use them as table centers or name cards. They also make for a beautiful cake topper!
For this project, we used Paper Papers text weight metallic paper. This paper is truly special. Unique in its thinner composition than most cardstocks, it is ideal for projects such as this one. It also has a subtle shimmering quality that we love. For these specific paper swans, we used Paper Papers metallic paper in Rose Quartz, Vista, Iron Satin, Onyx, Crystal, and Platinum. However, they offer an array of other colors to choose from as well – why not play around with different combinations?
