A Bird House for Tiffany's Birthday

Hi everyone, I hope this blog finds you well. I promised to let you see the project that I made for Tiffany's birthday - also a Bird House, but a very different style. Again HUGE thanks to Laura Denison for the idea and Inspiration.

Here it is. A Wonderful Bird House. Made using chipboard and covered in Graphic 45 Secret Garden Papers.

I have heaps of photos to show you as well as a couple of videos.

Again, the little peg at the front was made by a local carpenter who is very skilled on the lathe, he made a few for me.

I took a few pictures of the outside of the Bird House to give you an idea of how I decorated it. These purple flowers were taken from a very cheap artificial flower that I found at Spotlight which looks much better once it is broken apart.

You get a great view of the fabulous G45 paper here. The pink flowers I made using quilling techniques, the Orange large flower was a Petaloo pack where you can make flowers from a small kit.

I used an old whale of a punch flower and some Spellbinders Foliage leaves, and the Anemone Flower Topper die S5-067.

I photographed four of the five tags that go inside the bird house. There is a huge amount of "real estate" for photos. These fold in half and slot inside the house.

Another of the tags shown open.

I used some of the spare pieces of paper I have in my stash.

I used a mixture of flowers that I made and others that were shop bought. Organza ribbon added a nice touch to each of the tags.

Another view of the bird House. The fence I made using Lollipop sticks which I painted white using Kaisercraft white paint. I also added a little more chipboard across the sticks which I glued to the Lollipop sticks to keep them in place.

Here are the videos I also said I would show you: The first is a brief introduction and the second is longer and shows more detail.

The main ingredients that I used to make this project are:

Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you enjoyed today's post.
