Paper Hummingbird Kit


Exclusive to Holly & Co!

We are so thrilled to be stocking Zack’s paper bird kits, which will carefully guide you through his intricate bird-making process. In a world where everything moves so fast and gratification is so instant, these kits really do make you stop for a while and get totally lost in something beautifully creative.

This kit has all you need to create your very own paper feathered, life-size hummingbird sculpture. All you need is a craft knife, a pair of scissors and your creativity.

A note from Holly…

This product was created in collaboration with Paper and Wood and features in my book, Do What You Love, Love What You Do

Every micro chapter within the book features a unique small business product which creatively captures the key takeaway. I truly believe in the power of small business and wanted to bring the pages of my book to life in a way never done before, and allow you to share in that magic too. Because, believe me, when you do what you love, you’ll want to wear it, have it in your home and shout it from the rooftops too!

Paper & Wood

Paper & Wood was founded by Zack Mclaughlin in 2015.

Creating dramatically beautiful sculptures of birds from little more than paper and wood. He delicately hand cuts his feathers using only a pair of scissors. These feathers are so realistic that they are hard to differentiate from the real thing. Some of his creations can take hundreds of hours! His birds are now loved all over and get flown to the most remote parts of the world. 

The Hummingbird has been a symbol of hope and strength to Holly since the early days of Holly & Co and we are lucky enough to have our very own hummingbird kit, made by Zack, and featured in Holly’s Do What You Love book.
