Milk carton birdhouse

Hi everyone, happy Friday!

Today is the last day to get an extra 10% off the starter kit, so if you want to sign up and be a Sparkly Stamper let me know as soon as !

I made this little birdhouse as part of my demonstration at the craft event last Tuesday.

I followed the tutorial on Jo's blog, it's a 2,4,6,8 box which has been slightly adapted.

I popped the cute little bird from the 2 step bird punch on the front of the box.

You can't really tell in this picture but I used the shimmer paints with rubbing alcohol and spritzed the roof. It gives is the most gorgeous sparkle!

And I filled my box with some dolly mixtures which I have to confess, are no longer there..!
I love dolly mixtures!

I've made another card which I will share with you soon with the Something Sweet stamp set, I love this set with the sweet treat cups that I've gone a bit over board making cards with them.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
take care.

It's great Nicci, great idea isn't it, must have a go with the grandkids. I love dolly mixtures too but the ones you get these days aren't like the real ones - ooh sound like an old woman now hehe ;)
