Actually, I’m not sure this would really hold up for much of a bird… we had parakeets for years, and I’ve realized that birds are actually pretty messy animals. Cardstock… bird… not a good combo.
But fortunately, it’s not hard to have a cute Designer Series Paper bird with the new Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch in the Occasions Mini Catalog! What a fun punch–all three elements are actually on the same punch. So you can punch them all out at once, or if you want different colors, put strips of cardstock in and punch just the elements you want.
On my birdhouse sides, I used the Sale-A-Bration Good Neighbor stamp set (one of the free choices with a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration). This is my 6-year old daughter’s new favorite stamp set. All the little roofs and trees and buildings are different pieces so you can mix and match anything you like!
The main part of the birdhouse uses the Mini Milk Carton Die, which is actually the Big Shot die featured in my February Big Shot Die of the Month Club. This sweet little birdhouse is one of the 4 projects that you’ll make when you sign up for my club.
You’ll get the Mini Milk Carton die as part of your Club fee ($42), plus you’ll receive pre-cut cardstock and embellishments ready-to-stamp along with printed directions for 4 projects. Just use whatever stamps and inks you have on hand at home, and your new Big Shot die!
If you’ve never tried one of my clubs, this is a great chance to try one out. You can even add to your Big Shot Die of the Month Club order and receive a free Sale-A-Bration stamp set of your choice! (Click here to learn more about my Big Shot Club)
