Hi, Happy Monday!! I saw this cute bird holder on Gretchen's blog. The tutorial for it was inexpensive. Hers was made using all Stampin' Up supplies but I thought I could make one using some of my new bird embossing templates. My mom loves bird houses and she recently had a birthday, so I thought this would be the perfect gift for her. The paper I used is from Lasting Impressions and I used Lasting Impressions templates to make the birds, flowers and dragonfly. I hand cut the paper to make it look like grass. The bottom is cut from a Stampin' Up top note die. The circle in the middle is cut out with a circle cutter. Then I used circle punches to frame around the circle. The cards were all bird themed, and when I designed them, I made sure they all lined up so that the bird on the card would show through the window. I was in a hurry to get this done and get it to my mom so I didn't take pictures of the cards. They were all the size that can fit in a business sized envelope.
