I generally make cards, so do a 3D model is something rare for me. This year though I have been trying different things and this is my first attempt at a bird house
I managed to find a tempate for a small bird house, which I cut out in white card.
I then cut out pattern paper for front and back.
Now this house is only about 4" high,, so I knew I couldnt put a lot of it. So I looked at my cutting dies and decided on the lovely roses, a recent sprig, and one of the ever so cute owls I got recently
I got to play with cosmic paints too, as I painted the roses and the sprigg, love the sheen you get with those paints
There wasn't a roof part to this template, so I had to estimate that piece, and I embossed the whole roof with one of my embossing folders, gave it a lovely texture. And has the roof looked a bit empty, I used a lovely butterfly cutting die for that section
This is my first bird house, and I am well pleased with how this project turned out. Ever so cute too :D
