Sunflower Birdhouses

Little birdhouses filled with sunflower seeds – it’s spring!  I made up lots of these for my team meeting today and thought I’d share with you the different ways they came out.  I ended up with 3 different styles – total accident. 

From left to right – made with the striped embossing folder, scored with the Simply Scored board and last, but not least, the roof on backwards (only did this once!)  Here’s a close up of the difference between the score board and embossing folder

I made half of them one way and half the other.  To make the tags, I simply punched the seed packet with the Word Window punch!  How nice of it to fit!

Card stock – Crumb Cake, Riding Hood Red, Bashful Blue, Garden Green
Ink – Crumb Cake, Bashful Blue
Etc – Chocolate Chip Stampin Write Marker, spritzer, Milk Carton Die, Scallop Edge punch, 1″ circle punch, acetate, Word Window punch, Bird punch, mini clothespin, Striped embossing folder or Simply Scored.

Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

  1. These are so cute. I bought wooden birdhouses at the dollar store and painted them. Put them in a tree outside my kitchen window and last year I watched as one small bird checked everyone of them to see if he could get in it. TFS Have a good day. Hugs n’ Stuff, Lynne
