Bird House

The challenge at Get Funky this month is to follow the recipe and whip up a crafty creation.
The recipe called for
5 flowers
3 different papers
2 buttons
1 ribbon
A Sprinkle of gems or pearls to season.

So I got cooking and this is what came out of the oven!!! A nice little Bird House gift box. Just the right size to hold a cup cake or a muffin. I found this cute template on the web for $3.99 and altered it slightly by adding a base to it.


The 3 papers I used were:


The June freebie download paper for the house. Paper Blossom No 6. for the roof and base and Paper Blossom No 5. to make the centres of the five flowers.


Ribbon was used to make the hanging loop and also to close the lid of the roof with a bow on the side. Gems were used to finish off the flowers. A little extra seasoning was added in the shape of swirls, netting and the butterfly of course.






Entering this into the following:

Get Funky: Follow the recipe.
Make it Monday Party: Paper Crafts.
1st Unique Gifts: Handmade Mondays.
Totally Gorjuss: Flower Power.
Moving along with the Times: Anything but a card.
Pile it on: Whats your Angle.
