Birdhouse

ETA: SORRY this project has been removed for publication!
Look for it in the April/May issue of Simply Handmade! :)


I told you that you would have to put up with more October Afternoon Hometown papers! I had to buy this birdhouse when I saw it. I love the little birdie too. He is going on my Christmas cards, but why not use him now? I took the pictures in my pretty little rock garden that is next to the house. I love that spot. I think it is my favorite place in the yard. Two little trees, creeping and blooming vines, my turtle lawn ornament, and a 3-tired basket of plants...sorry, back to the project.

Supplies:
Birdhouse-Darice
Patterned paper-October Afternoon
Cardstock, Stamp-Papertrey Ink
Yellow trim and Lace-Wright's
Branches and moss-Michael's
Paint-Delta Acrylic
Adhesive-Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive

thanks for stopping by!

This is just adorable!! Where did you get that fabulous birdhouse? Everyone I see is so generic. But the build of this one is a bit different and really lets those papers shine. Of course your genius brain putting it together could be why it looks so good; )
