Making Bird Ornaments
Now that I've had some time to relax and cruise the blog world. I have found a few things I want to do for next year. I found this wonderful blog.You will just love everything they do! Check it out. craftysisters Beautiful photos.
I did my own little tweaking due to what I had on hand. I had seen some bird ornaments somewhere that I fell in love with. Don't remember where, sorry.
I created my own pattern out of card stock and some left over scrap paper.
I used card stock for the body and then glued paper on top of it. I also glued paper to the back side as well. Didn't want it to look dull. So there are three layers to make it thicker. After I glued the pieces together I put a book on top of it to keep it from curling up.
I normally wouldn't have used gold but it looked best with the paper I had on hand. I found the music paper for the wing on line and down loaded form this site. music-scores.com. Next time I will use a more vintage colored paper instead of white copy paper. Ha ha! Just trying to work out the kinks.
I used red glitter glue for the heart but I'm sure a rhinestone would work too.
Then I added a little rhinestone for the eye.
This was a fun and easy little project. Also this was the first time for me to give a tutorial. What do ya think of my maiden voyage?
I hope you enjoyed it.
