Two Bird House Cards

Birdhouse Card
I have been trying to use up some of my huge button collection and was really chuffed when I rediscovered these birdhouses, as they are so on trend at the moment, (listen to me, I’ve gone all Gok Wan!)

I’ve used my Silhouette to cut out the branches (Bird Branch), a corner flower punch and nail decorations from Poundland for the flower centres.

I have used such small embellishments to try and keep everything in proportion.

The buttons came in a bumper pack from Create and Craft in the old days when Alan and Barry were in charge!
