I mean..seriously?  How cute are these??!??!? Keep on reading on how to make these little cuties. They are perfect for Spring! And the button embossing folder is too perfect!
If you haven’t gotten a Fiskars Paper crimper yet then you better! Check out our Technique Videos HERE for more ideas and a video on Corrugating.
Cut files from cardstock using Silhouettte Portrait. Use paper crimper on roofs and sand using Sand It Gadget. Emboss main sections of bird houses using the button box embossing folder, sand using Sand It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy.
Assemble each bird house, thread ribbon through roof and glue roof in position. Roll piece of Core cardstock tightly to make peg for perch and place in position, to finish.
