Wow - it's Wednesday already - this week sure is flying by fast!! I managed to get a load of handmade gifts done yesterday for my sons' teachers. I made another attempt at the Magnolia birdhouse and have to say I'm SO much happier with this one - I love how it turned out!
I printed the template directly onto kraft paper and cut it out, then using white pigment ink stamped a snowflake design all over. It's very subtle (and you may need to click on the picture for a closer view) but IRL it looks gorgeous. I used some Magnolia paper for the roof - I wanted to get the feel of a gingerbread creation for the house.
This side angle picture gives a clearer view on the roof, sentiment and embellishment. I also added a cream silk bow with a red button and twine to the front. Inside is stuffed full of chocolate truffles, mmmm!! I also placed a small velcro fastening on the opening side of the roof so it sits flat when closed.
Well, there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look and leave a comment - it's much appreciated! I'm excited for the boys' teachers to see their gifts!! I hope you all have a fabulous day - it's getting really cold here at the moment - highs of -15oc!!!
