My Bird House!

I'm back showcasing you a bird house that I was so tempted to work on this morning.  I've seen it on You Tube and had to make it, the box was super fast to put together but the roof to attach to the cover of the box was a little bit time consuming.. The video on You Tube showed 5 layers of strips for the shingles but I didn't like how spacey they were so I added 6 strips on all four corners so I ended up cutting a total of (24) 4 x 1 in. and punch each strip with my EK punch to make it look like shingles. Here are the different angles of my precious bird house and I he has a new home on my computer stand. 

Oops on the glare - my computer stand faces my picture window and with the bright sun the glare bounced right of the tint from the glass.

Recipe for my bird house:
Quic Kutz embossing folder
Ek border punch
WO flowers
Bird stamp - BoBunny
Spellbinders foliage die

I have a matching card that I will post up soon!

Thanks for peeking in!
