Altered birdhouse.

It's taken me ages to get around to posting about this cute little thing I made at the Exhall crop back in June (designed by Rebekah Brumby), mainly because I had taken photos of it, uploaded these onto my PC, and then couldn't find them. .... How many others does this happen to "I know I have a photo of xyz, but I can't find them...."

The birdhouse itself was bare MDF, we covered it with papers cut using the house as a template. I love the roof covering with buttons, the notice on the front was made using a piece of an old corrugated box, stamped (Prima), cut out, I inked and tore mine too, and added some brads and a ribbon to hang the sign. The bird is chipboard covered in UTEE in the melt pot, and the flowers are fabric. it sits nicely on the dresser in my kitchen... Hannah has been trying to pinch it to take away with her as she likes it, but I've said no!!!

The only thing I don't like about it is the fact that it is empty :(

Friday tomorrow, and as Katie did so well in her science exams (A*'s !!!!) we'll be out for pizza, any excuse really!

Ooh it's lovely Ann - and I double love it because it has a practical use. Even if it is currently under employed!
Enjoy Pizza night, and congrats to Katie!
