A Little Birdy (house) Birthday



Are you a fan of SRM clear tubes like I am? I have used them for party favors, gifts, and ornaments. There are so many ways to use them, and when a challenge is presented to use them in a new way I start dreaming up all kinds of things! I really wanted to build a birdhouse and I think it worked out pretty well! I filled the Tube with sunflower seeds and added a fun sticker sentiment from the we've got your sticker plus/birdie  



This birdhouse was cut using the Silhouette in shades that hold onto to summer and quietly beckons fall! To make this adorable bird I put the sticker on white cardstock and trimmed around it, I added a bitty party hat from a patterned paper and coated the bird with glossy accents and sprinkled it with clear glitter.  The banner was also cut from patterned paper and tied to the roof with bakers twine, then added a fancy Birthday sticker sentiment
 I hope the next time you need a little Birthday something you will give this a try!
