|Graphic 45 Birdhouse|
Hi friends sharing a 3 D birdhouse
I made using Crealies
dies and gorgeous Graphic 45
papers with a bit of recycling thrown in.
This is a fall themed home decor idea with mushrooms, flowers, pearls and flowers galore. A little birdie perching on a tiny branch is peeking out of her home!
This project has feathers, natural dried pollen,gorgeous berries , fabric leaves and a bronze mushroom. Here is how I made the stand and base for the birdhouse:
I recycled a cardboard tube [ the inside of a roll of bandage] by wrapping it with Graphic 45 paper and used it to form a stand for the birdhouse.
Recycled a CD to form a sturdy base for the bird house. Layered discs of foam, cardboard and pattern paper to give extra height and strength to the base .To give some more height also added the cardboard tube leftover from foam tape under the CD
The little garden on the base of the birdhouse has Sospeso Trasparente
flowers, puffy fabric flowers, mushrooms, butterflies and birds! The tiny butterfly and hummingbird are popped up on acetate so they appear to literally fly!!

The shining white flowers winding around the stand above and the shimmering orange daisy you see below plus the shiny leaves are all made using the Italian art form Sospeso Trasparente

I used Crealies dies
and scraps of Graphic 45 papers to make the birds . It is so satisfying not to waste even the tiniest bit of your favorite paper! The shimmering white feathers you can see peeking from places were also made using Crealies dies
The shiny butterfly disc was made from a scrap of Graphic 45 paper and a glass cabochon!
And that is how the birdhouse looks on our terrace garden.I hope you liked this idea.
I used the same Crealies
dies to make birdhouse Tealight holders earlier this month [link here : Teacher's Day Gifts
