Birdhouses made with Mini Milk Carton Die


I am trying to come up with different items to sell this year at craft fairs, and I have some in early Fall so I thought the Bird Houses would be cute.  I filled them with Hershey Kisses and will have tags that can be added for Birthday, Thank You, Thinking of You, or Get Well.

The Bird House was made by taking a piece of Crumb Cake Card Stock and cutting it out with the Mini Milk Carton Die.  Before I put it together I punched my circle and added a Window Sheet so the candy would not fall out.

I used Sticky Strip to adhere my sides, and then added the roof which is a piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock, embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.  I thought the roof needed a bit of embellishment so I added my punched flowers adorned with small pearls.

I punched the bird with the Bird Builder Punch and placed it to the front of the Bird House using a dimensional.  It is nice when the Dies can be used to make different items, and last year I made Haunted Houses for Halloween with the same die. 

The following were used:
Card Stock:  Crumb Cake #120953, Chocolate Chip #102128, Pool Party #122924 (the birds were made with a variety of colors) Window Sheets #114323
