I made this birdhouse last week, but I couldn't get a decent shot of it.
I printed this template from a website onto Paper Temptress' new Spring Green Skinny Columned Paper. My printer accepted the paper without a hitch and the printing was just fine. I created my own template for the bird and embellished it with a rhinestone eye. The Navy Blue Leather paper has a leather (or feather...it rhymes!) texture to it.
Then I added embellishments made from other Paper Temptress papers. The watermelon/mango paper is the two sided Sorbet Duplex paper. In real life, you can see a hint of the opposite color on the large flower because I folded the paper to make it more dimensional. The sentiment is from Nature's Song by Paper Makeup Stamps.
You can seal this house up or keep it open with a flap. It's a nice small size that would make an adorable favor for chocolates! I used a nice thick Double Duty Chocolate for the roof and perch. All the papers used on this project are pretty heavy so it will stand up to a little wear and tear as it is opened and closed by the recipient.
