A Bird House

Good afternoon all! This week I´ve been busy with this lovely bird house. I´m no good with folds and such things, but I found a template in the Tilda Ink magazine that was easy enough for me to follow.

Decorpaper and star shaped buttons are from Panduro. The gorgeous roses are from Handarbeta. I used a Cuttlebug die for the snowflake and a QK die for small leaves. Ribbons, gems and threads are from my stash. The faux stitching is made with Sakura pens. The acetate for the window, urm the birds wont get into to this house, is from a grape package.

Here´s a picture showing the roof. One side of the roof isn´t glued and you can open it to fill the house with candy or a tea light (the electric ones works best here).

The sentiment stamp is Prima. I have been generous with Star Dust Stickles and some Perfect Pearls. I´m quite pleased with this one, as it is my first real try with a bird house, but it was so easy to follow the instructions. Might try to make a card with fun folds too :)

I´ll enter By The Cute And The Girly again, you can enter their challenges with different crafts, and Whimsy Stamps Challenges who wants to something else than cards.

Got to show you the fab blog candy I won last friday at Simon Says Stamp. It´s a lovely Penny Black stamp and I´m so looking forward to use it. I have to say that I´m surprised over the fast delivery, thanks so much Simon SS! I´ll have a lovely weekend with this one! And with my family too, hehe.

Hope you all get a fab friday evening,
