C.R.A.F.T Challenge 15 - Anything But A Card

My DT project this week for C.R.A.F.T Challenge 15 is, as you can see, a Birdhouse!

It was very easy to make - the 'body' of the box is just an A4 card scored and folded into four equal parts (after leaving a 1.5cm 'lip' for sticking), which is easier to decorate, cut holes in etc. before you stick it together.

The roof, is just another pice of card I fudged around with until it fitted.

The two birds are Inkadinkadoo stamps which I cut out, coloured and mounted, one on the roof and one on the perch.
I roughly sketched and coloured some flowers and used an Adirondack Lettuce inkpad to make some rudimentary grass and colour the roof.
Hope you like it!

ps I've entered this into a challenge at Flashback 2011! LOL!
It's the first challenge I've come across which INSISTS on back linking! 


  1. I missed this when I visited yesterday, must have had my eyes closed 'cos it's gorgeous. I just adore bird houses and this is beautiful, those inkadinkadoo birds are stunning.



Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment!
I will try to respond where time allows.

Lots going on at Chez Eiglas... ;)
