Birdhouse Treat Box
Vicky continues with her use of the Forget Me Nots paper collection by creating a Birdhouse
'I am so excited to be doing my very first post for the Meg's Garden Design Team!
I modified my own template from my gingerbread house box that I made for Christmas and came up with this cute little birdhouse box and the roof is actually a card. The box is made of one 12x12 sheet of paper from the brand new "Forget Me Not" collection. Meg's Garden also sells gorgeous trims, laces and flowers. Here I used cherry blossoms, paper leaves, lace and trim. The bird was cut out of another paper from the collection and I watercolored it blue to match and added feathers.'
'Since Meg's garden prints on long sheets, you get not only a 12x12 but also a 4x12 strip with every paper in the collection. 4x12 is a perfect size for cards! I used the coordinating strip for the outside of the birdhouse roof.'
'Here is the underside of the roof - I created a card by glueing another excess paper strip (from another paper in the collection) - which is the inside of the card. The paper is so beautiful that all it needed was a stamped phrase. To attach the card just use a clamp clip to the top of the box and decorate with lace/trim'
What a gorgeous Birdhouse & thanks to Vicky for the project & also the pattern on her blog - there are so many variations that can be done. Christmas as a Gingerbread house is perfect, Easter, parties, a Tim Holtz grunge, a cottage garden with twigs, a Parisian birdhouse & more ....
Well done Vicky & it is great to have you on the DT.
Bye for now
