My dad just retired from his job as a commercial pilot this fall, and so for our family dinner I made little name card holders using each airline he has flown for during his many years in the air. They're about 4" x 2" (folded), made out of a single piece of card and painting using Derwent Inktense pencils. The wings and tails are cut out and folded up to give them a 3rd dimension. The cotton ball 'clouds' and name tags are removable, since I was considering framing the planes in shadow boxes as a nice reminder.

Thanks for looking! Smiley
