Back with another post of the girlies at The Wateringhole .
This week it was my turn and we were making Birdhouses.
These can be used as gift boxes fill them up with goodies. Some ideas that came forward were for Valentines gifts filled with chocolates. Easter fill with chocolate eggs. Fill with cotton wool balls for the dressing table. I have mine in the spare bedroom waiting for my new craft room, then my idea is to fill them with flowers as a storage solution. A pink birdhouse for pink flowers, a blue one for blue flowers etc etc.
These two are my samples.
Girlies concentrating! No time to chat - could hear a pin drop at this point.
Lots of snipping.
Tricky to assemble.
Finished Birdhouses ....
Sharon's, lovely colour!
Julia's at a different angle, it is so pretty. I love the ridge on this one in the spotty paper and the heart on the back really great ideas.
Rosemary's love the choice of papers.
Mum's, tarting up at home (her words not mine). The card has a very delicate pattern.
Sally's - lots of clever punching on the roof and the leaves on the front.
Sharon's - a different angle to show the lovely papers. Complete with ribbon to hang it up.
Gallery of them all...
Another just for luck.
They have all taken on their own personality - I just think they are fab.
Well done girlies, it is quite challenging to get them finished in the time, there is plenty to do to complete. From cutting out the templates, transferring to card, cutting out, assembling, most importantly fitting in a coffee/tea/biscuit/ chat half way through. You do need to be an octopus at times especially when putting the pieces together.
That is it from me for now, missed you Sue and Jacky, see you next time.
