Last week, I needed to make a little Easter treat for the daughter of a very good friend. I like to make a little gift bag or box for her and fill it with a mixture of smaller eggs, rather than give her a commercially boxed egg. I was going to go down the tested route of bunny or chick shaped boxes until I found a cut file for the cutest little birdhouse by Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Online store…
I adjusted the size of the birdhouse slightly, in order to make maximum use of a sheet of A4 cardstock, but made no other changes, just decided on a paper, lined it up on the mat and pressed cut… Then I filled it with allsorts of Easter goodies!!
I had little trouble finding the perfect ribbon, so I coloured a piece of natural coloured ribbon with my Pro-Markers – I coloured the underneath, so that the colour of the spots was not changed. A little glue dot added to the underside secured the ribbon in place without needing to tie a bow.
I hope she likes her little birdhouse on Easter morning 🙂
