Birdhouse Gift Box

Hi Folks.....I've been having a little bit of a play this morning.....and I just had to share.....oh I know I have lots of WORK stuff to do....but after my non-crafting weekend.....I can't get back into the swing.    I saw this cute little birdhouse gift box on Julie Hickey's blog and just had to make it.....it is so darned cute.  I originally saw it on Nichole Heady's blog....one seriously talented lady...but forgot to save the info.......click HERE to download the template and instructions.

Isn't this just super cute......filled with chocolates.....a great little gift idea
or even bird seed to give to a bird lover
Papers: MME....Pretty Please
Green and Brown Bazzill Cardstock
Flowers: Craftwork Cards....Choko Clear Stamp Set
Sentiment: Penny Black "Hugs" Collection
Leaves & Stem: Sizzix Die
Scallop: Hero Arts...."Hello Circles" Clear Stamp Set
Ribbon:  from the ribbon stash box
Well I'd  better go and remove it from the garden before the birds take up residence.....they are already showing some interest and I am definitely off to get stuck into some work now......catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxx
