Newton's Nook Designs February Release continues!

Today Newton's Nooks Designs February release continues with 'Tweet Talk' - an adorable set perfect for all you bird lovers out there like me!

Seeing little birdie nests and bird houses just warms my heart so I decided to make one using this set:
I traced a template I had lying around on some designer paper, cut it out and scored it.  Before attaching the roof I wanted to give the house a recessed image to see - so I stamped a pair of birdies and created a little nest for them using a Martha Stewart punch and attached some eggs waiting to hatch in the form of petite glass pearl beads.  I adhered thick dimensionals inside the birdhouse around the edge of the hole and centered the birdie couple where I wanted them, so they are set back and bit and look like they are inside the house.  Here is a close up of the birdie couple:

I created the roof with multiple layers trimmed by a scalloped edger punch to make it resemble shingles and stamped their 'home tweet home' sign on craft cardstock, punched it out, added a few brushed copper brads to the ends and popped it up using dimensionals - their home is complete!

Now on to the fun part...

Clever idea to make your own birdhouse for your new bird friends. Recessing the entrance and putting in the "nest" was great too. thanks for the idea. I have a wooden birdhouse that I've been trying to figure out how to decorate. This might be the way.
