Ornamental Bird


I have been hired by Crafty Secrets to help make some ornaments for their Christmas tree that will be at their booth for the BC Creative Expo. I was playing around with some ideas for their chipboard and you know how I am with birds! This little ornament looks darling from both sides. It was quite simple to make, I'll probably post a tutorial when I make a second one. All paper and chipboard are Crafty Secrets. I love this paper because it is two sided. This way the ornament looks pretty on the inside too.

Yes, my favorite part is this bird. The little pearl eye I colored with my copic marker, it is made by "robin's nest" how fitting! I went to the hardware store today to buy some files so that I could sand all the creases in this chipboard. You will see a menagerie of trinkets for the tree in the coming month!

OK lots of requests already for a tutorial, watch for it tomorrow!
