Birdhouse a’la Snapdragon Snippets

I have a really long list of gifts to craft and my time alone and undisturbed is coming to an end soon (tho that doesn’t mean I’ll stop crafting of course!)  I still need to make a god head-start on some Christmas projects too. 🙂

One of the gifts I wanted to make is this birdhouse for my Grandma. I purchased the file in the Silhouette on-line store and made it bigger. It is a fairly simple assembly but I didn’t want it to be so “plain” so I searched my SVGCuts file-library and found the bird that was an embellishment on the matchbox book. Made it double-sided so it can “sit” on branches that were also SVGCuts files.

This was a no-fuss assembly (if I don’t count the burned fingers from the hot glue gun . I only embellished with Liquid Pearls in Ruby Red for the berries and inked the edges of the house and the birds. It’ll hang on a cord which I’ll hide under a cluster of ribbons.

Easy (tho I really need to be better at handling the hot glue gun!) and cute too!

Thanks for reading! I’ll be making some sew-y crafts for … somebody next!
