Christmas for the Birds

Published by at 6:16 am under Inkadinkado Designs

  Horray for the weekend! I hope you all have something fun planned! I am going shopping with my boys and friend Rachel! I can’t wait! : )

  I was so honored when Lynda asked me to be her guest for the OCC challenge today!! Thanks again Lynda! The challenge is to make a Holiday Gift! I don’t know WHAT got into me, but I saw this birdhouse that I bought months ago and decided to have at it! 🙂 I painted it with some brown paint. I only used 1 layer of paint because I liked the look of it with the wood still showing through. I cut out the mistletoe and pine spray for the top. The roof has more of the lace trim and some red paper with holly stamped on it. (The holly comes from the same set I used for the whole thing….Cool Christmas from Inkadinkado) I wrapped linen thread around the 2 bird “stands” …. I have no idea what you’d really call them.

  The card and jar are pretty straight forward. My hand was sore after cutting this all out though! 🙂 I couldn’t have done it without my beloved EK Success Cutterbee Scissors! Here are my pictures. I am attaching the individual ones too so you can see them better close up! 🙂
