Mini Bird House

Di sent me some more Tando Chippie to play with the other day including this fantastic Mini Bird House.

First thought on seeing it, Ring Box.  OK so it is a tad deep but with a handy cushion (round makeup sponge) the ring can just peep out of the little hole.

Cut down some paper to cover the roof attached to the roof sections with a strip in the middle to make a hinge.   Slotted the 4 side together and painted them with acrylic and then when dry watered glue and more acrylic while that was drying decided it was too pink and loud so added a thin coat of sludgy green and then wiped all the sides with a baby wipe.   When it was all dry stamped and embossed the walls then outlined the design with Sakura pens.   A Stainless Steel washer stuck on the front arount the hole.   The butterfly was stamped onto the roof and then onto vellumn cut out and just the body attached to the roof.    DI inks were used on the roof to tie it into the body of the box.   If you look you can just see the glint of a ring inside.

There is a regular sized bidr house and now this Mini one which is the same design just smaller.
