Isn't this the cutest little bird! :<) You can find the tutorial for "Silly Bird" on the wonderfully creative blog Paper Punch Addiction at http://www.paperpunchaddiction.com/ When I saw this crazy little bird, I knew that I had to make one for myself immediately! :<) I loved how he turned out, but now he needed a birdhouse! I had recently put together my first Milk Carton Box using a tutorial - I don't have the die - and it was sitting on my work table until I could think of something to use it for. My Silly Bird needed a birdhouse. Perfect! You can find the tutorial that I used to make this box at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/milk_carton_box/
In my last post I said that I had re-created some flowers from the pattern on this paper I loved, using paper punches. So here is the Silly Bird, the Milk Carton Box and my re-created flowers from the BoBunny paper. I hope that you enjoy! He makes me smile everytime I look at him sitting there and I am sure he is only the first of many I will make! :<)
I apologize for not making my rounds of blogs recently to see what you are all doing and to leave a comment, but real life has been chaotic here for the past many weeks and then came to a crisis and I am now still dealing with issues. I am mentally and physically exhausted by it all but so grateful that I have my blog and my projects and my dolls to keep my mind occupied with something other than these concerns and reading your lovely comments and e-mails just makes my day and keeps me going! :<) So thank you again for your kindness and I will be back to visiting your blogs soon! Wishing you a good day today!
Tomorrow I have photos of the card that accompanies the bird/birdhouse.
