This month we are focusing on anything but a card. I chose to make a birdhouse, that I cased from Paper Craft Planet, I just loved how easy the tutorial that Lyn Bernatovich did. I love making this so much that I will make my own tutorial soon.
Here is the front my project:
Here is a side view
DSP Springtime Vintage from Occ Mini
Punch 2 Step Bird, Scallop Circle
Markers Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, black,
Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, and Rose Red
Accessories Rosettes, Basic Pearls, Chantilly Lace
I cut a piece of card stock 4x6 and marked the center of the 4 inch side at 2 inch and down 2 1/2 on each side and this is your template for the bird house front and back. Then I cut 2 pieces of double sided DSP 4x6 and then place template over both pieces and cut. To make the sides cut 2 dsp pieces 2x3 1/2. Score at 1/2, 1, and 1 1/2 inches. Fold to create one mountain folding the center add two valley folds on either side. Your Accordion should look like a W if folded correctly.
Punch out the front panel with large or extra-large circle punch. I placed a piece of toulle on the reverse side of the front window and taped in place. To decorate the bottom of the window I added my bird and flowers. Added lace bow and pearls. Then I assembled the sides of the birdhouse. I love the way it came out.
