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...
