Birdhouse with Vintage/Ephemera papers and Poinsettia lace flowers

Hello everyone.
It’s time for a new challenge over at Polkadoodles We Love 2 Create challenge blog.

For today, I’ve made a birdhouse out of paper and decorate it. This was really a fun project to make.

I started by cover the base with papers from Vintage journal & Ephemera paper collection. When that was done, I assembled it. The roof I covered with burlap, and added it to the birdhouse. I also applied sand texture paste to it.

Next, I colored in cheesecloth with Distress ink, and attached it here and there around the house. Then, I stamped three film strips from the Vintage Ephemera stamp set, that I cut out. I bended them and attached them to the house. I also die-cut out Poinsettia lace flowers, that I colored in with Distress ink and assembled with pearls and rhinestones. I added them to the birdhouse.

Next, I decorated with clear and black flower pot stones. Then, the final part of this project, was to add glue from a glue gun around the house. I tried to add some that was falling down from the roof. This gave a really interesting element.

I hope you enjoyed this project, I had a lot of fun making it.

Have a crafty day!
