Baker's Box Thinlits - Bird House

When I participate in craft fairs for the holidays I try to come up with a few different product ideas to go along with the usual bunnies and chicks.  So this year I thought I would turn the Baker's Box Thinlits Die into a bird house.  I cut a hole in the center using a Circle Framelit, not the framelit that came with the box (I wanted a smaller circle), adhered a Window Sheet on the inside and added my Robin Eggs.  I placed a Hello Spring tag on one side, and a Happy Easter tag on the other side.  Now, when you think of Spring you can also think of Easter and all of the goodies that the Easter Bunny brings.

You can cut this framelit with Designer Series Paper or Card Stock.  I used paper from the Neutral Designer Series Paper Stack.  You can cut two bird houses with one 12 x 12 sheet of paper.  There are instructions that come with the thinlit on how to put the box together.  I added the mini clothespin at the top more for decoration than to keep the box together since I used my Tear & Tape Adhesive to keep it together.
