A little bit of Bird Paradise

I thought I'd share an altered item with you today ... I created a little birdhouse decoration with Little Yellow Bicycle's Paradise collection.

I bought the following wooden birdhouse shape at Dollarama for $2 (I know, I'm a big spender :).  I am constantly keeping my eye out for things that could be turned into altered items ... and this was perfect!

You can see that I extended the paper below the birdhouse in order to give it more shape (and more room for my embellishments).   I created the roofing by punching circles and folding them across the top, then running one of the stickers along the sides.

I used various chipboard and felt embellishments, along with some hemp twine, and created this cute cluster.  The heart pins add that little bit "extra" :)

I also added a little bird in the sky to balance out my embellishments.

Thanks for stopping in today!
Be sure to come back tomorrow to see more creations!
