I had lots of birdhouses left over from the party so I decided to use some as gifts. These houses were made for a friend who could not come to the party because her car wouldn't work the first night and then her sister had a baby the second night. This friend has 3 (now 4) nieces so I made a birdhouse for each one.
This is one of my favorite birdhouses. I used some leftover metallic cardboard that I found in some Martha Stewart packaging. It is lovely cardboard. I cut it using a Tim Holtz die called Baroque which works beautifully as a house base. This birdhouse is for my friend who couldn't attend. Oh, the reason I made the girls birdhouses was because they had asked their aunt to make them a birdhouse when she came to the party.
Yes, these are both mini and MARVELOUS! How sweet of you to make these for your friend and her nieces! I bet they were delighted to receive them! I love the vintage, 50's look to these and your stained trees look fabulous! Thank you for playing along at A Vintage Journey, too! Hugs!
Awww, they really are mini marvels Lucy and just perfect for the nieces of your friend. I just love the shape of the houses, those wonderful cardinals and the pretty coloured trees. As Sara has already said, I bet the girls were delightd to receive these!
