Lots of people have made bird house boxes this is my take on it.
The top is hinged and inside are matching cards, gift tags and note book. Originally I was going to put in a piece of acetate and fill the box with bird seed for my mum, she is always feeding the bird's in her garden.
The paper I chose to use is old stock Basic Grey but I chose it because it had a circle on the design which I used for the opening on the front of the bird house. All my measurements to make the bird box had to be drawn around this, fiddly but so worth it.
I made the pattern up for the bird house as I went along, I think it worked out well.
