~ a BIRD HOUSE FOR LOVE BIRDS ~

I had so much fun decorating this bird house with the wonderful collection from My Little Yellow Bicycle called LOVE LETTERS that will come out for Valentine's Day

My children really liked that little Bird house so I'm thinking I'll make some more. I think they would be a great way to inspire them to write little love notes or for the little one to draw a picture and then slide it in the hole for the recipient to discover it.

I stamped some flourishes ( also from My LYB) onto the various papers with black Stazon prior to gluing them on the wood with Paper Source P.V.A

The paint is used was acrylic and when it was dry I added a coat of P.V.A
I was really lucky that the grommets from Making Memories were a perfect fit, I really like how they finish off the house nicely.

Thank you for letting me know what you think,I truly value your comments.
Do you do a lot of Home decor? Do you enjoy scrapping on other medium besides paper?

This is adorable. I love the flourishes and the little white flower fitted around the red stick. I have not dabbed in home decor but this is an excellent idea for a gift. I may try this for my friend who loves birdwatching and gardening. You're so creative.

I love the idea of using it as a secret spot to hide a love note. So sweet. I'm really an amature at paper crafts so I haven't branched out much into other surfaces but you always have such great inspiration here! Also, I truly appreciate all the comments you always leave for me too :)

Trop adorable ton joli nichoir, il faut que j'y pense pour mon jardin ! J'apprécie surtout le grommet, je ne suis pas sûre d'en trouver de cette taille chez nous...
