Altered Birdhouse

Here is my continuation for the National Scrapbooking Day celebration with Mothers & Daughters Creations. Who says you HAVE to scrapbook, can't we use scrapbooking papers to create something else?? Well that is what I did!

This started as a plain piece of wood in the shape of a birdhouse that I picked up at AC Moore for .25! What is wrong with me, why did I get just one?? I painted it with blue acrylic paint first. Then I took out this fabulous paper by Best Creations called
Sprightly - Butterflies & Bluebird. This awesome paper is already glittered, you gotta love that! I cut the paper out to place on the top portion of the birdhouse with the little blue bird on the branch. I covered the landing of the birdhouse in the same paper. Then I cut out the butterfly so it can hang out on the edge! The flowers on the bottom were punched from the same paper and I added some cute garden brads by Making Memories.

This turned out to be very simple but I decided to keep it simple sometimes less is more. The little peg would be perfect to hang a key, don't you think?

Don't forget about the awesome deals going on NOW at
Mothers & Daughters Creations!

I hope you enjoyed celebrating National Scrapbooking Day with me.

Thanks for looking.

Till Later....

I always kick myself after only picking up one of something! This looks fantastic. I like the colors and it would definitely make a perfect key holder.
