*2nd post for today so be sure to scroll down for my earlier post!*

So here is the bird house project that I have promised you. I think it turned out perfect. I love it! I created this using a template on Nichole Heady's blog. If you want the link to the template please email me and I will get that to you. I don't have it handy, other wise I would have linked it here. How cute would this be to give someone who just moved, or to someone that has been away for a while as a welcome home gift? I plan to give this to friends of ours that are moving this summer. I tucked a bag of bird seed inside:-) I used the SU! scallop border punch to create the shingled look on the roof. I love how it turned out. The template or sample doesn't call for a perch, but I added one by adding a small piece of a dowel roll I had around here. If you untied the bow at the top the roof lifts off allowing access to the bird seed. The sentiment on the tag if from PTI, called Boards & Beams. The sentiment actually says Home Sweet Home, but I didn't ink up the S in Sweet and added a T instead to coordinate with the whole "bird" theme. I hope you enjoy it. I had a lot of fun making it.
