A Simple little Birdhouse in under and hour.

This is a sample for the last class I will be teaching this term at our local school for a family craft night. It is made from 2 sheets of A4 card some lace and stamps. I drew out the pattern and printed them onto 2 A4 sheets of card then cut them out, stamped on them(Tim Holtz) and adhered them together. The lace is then placed on the roof and the bird(Tim Holtz) stamped and cut out and Glued on the stand which is just a bit of card rolled and placed in the hole. Nice and simple right! It actually has to be simple enough to be completed by Parents and kids in about an hour for the class. This total house and pattern took me less than an hour to complete so it should be timed perfectly for the class since I will print the pattern out onto the coloured card for them ahead of time. If anyone is interested in the pattern and instructions I can post it later in the week. Just leave me a note. I wanted to say a huge thank you to all the people who left comments on my last post. It is so nice to receive such uplifting comments. They are really apreciated. Now I am off to do some more reading. Have a great evening . Angela

WOW Angela what a fabulous bird box, it looks so sturdy too. Before reading the post I thought it was a pre-made wooden one. Love the way you've decorated it too. I'd be interested in the pattern to give it a go - Thanks Sam xxxxx

Like Sam I thought this was a wooden 'alterable' It is simply gorgeous. Like Sam would love to give it a go, not sure I could ever replicate your beautiful delicate stamping and subtle shading though. XOXO Zoe
