the Little Birdie goes Tweet, Tweet

This project was featured at:

I love to find ways to display pictures that are non-traditional.

Birdhouse; P K Glitz; Glitter; Sticky Tape; Moon Dust; Picture holder; Patterned Paper; Embossing Powder; Not Just Paper and Glue; Tutorial
When I came across this idea from Heidi Swapp on how to display my Instagram pictures, I knew it would be a keeper.
  • Remove the rope hanger from the top of the birdhouse then apply a base coat of paint to the entire project.
  • Cut patterned paper in to strips and ink the edges of each piece.
  • Apply sticky tape to the edges of the birdhouse
  • Cut pieces of WonderFilm to cover the entire birdhouse
  • Apply WonderFilm to one side of the birdhouse and begin adding strips of patterned paper
  • Continue until all sides are complete
  • Apply WonderFilm to roof of birdhouse
  • Add patterned paper to the peak of the roof
  • Cut the dowel rod to the length that you will need then glue in to the hole that is left from removing the rope hanger.
  • Apply moss to each of the roof sides and sprinkle with Crystal Moon Dust
  • Remove the paper covering from the Sticky Tape and apply a coordinating glitter color (I used Squash Blossom)

  • Apply liquid glue along the base edge of the birdhouse and add bird seed
  • Cover your chipboard heart with embossing ink and emboss with Chinese Firecracker

  • Apply additional embossing ink with a sea sponge by just "pouncing" and emboss with Wine.
  • Apply liquid glue to the back of the heart and adhere to the top of the roof.
  • Glue large clip to the top of the dowel rod.

You could also use this to hold recipes, notes, shopping list, or just about anything you wanted.
