Bird House

Good morning all!
How are you on this fine morning?
All is well here & as the cat is out of the bag, I feel I can
 share this little project with you all!

It's a little Topiary Bird House with a little treat box/planter underneath!
Read on to find out more about it!

Over at La Pashe Towers, our lovely Jak Heath has been 
working away to bring us all something very special! 
La Pashe has teamed up with Adele Rossol from Creations by AR 
and have created a CD which contains no less than 30 of her 3D templates.
The templates come in SVG and PDF format & there are full, easy to follow,
step by step instructions for each one!
So, it doesn't matter if you have a cutting machine or cut by hand,
you'll be able to create any one of these little beauties!
The first of these CDs is
Spring & Summer

So, if you're bored doing Christmas already, you can get your teeth into
a little something different!

Here's the little birdhouse with out the base!
I used some designer paper from a Papermania Capsule Collection paper pad
 to construct this little project.
I hand cut all the sections & assembled then added some little roses
which I cut from some edging trim & a bit of leaf  trim.
I have to confess that when I was trying to take my photos,
there was a moment of horror when the wind picked up & blew
 my little birdhouse down the stairs & right out into the middle of the road!
I thought all was lost but when I retrieved it, it was intact with the
exception of a couple of dirty marks on it.

Here's the planter box & the birdhouse.
I added some of the rose edging to the bottom of the planter& some
lace trim to the top. There's room in the little planter section
for a little treat or gift for someone special.
I have it on great authority that the CD Roms will be on sale at
the NEC Hobbycrats Show on Thursday, Friday, Saturday & Sunday,
if you're lucky enough to be going!
If not, they will be available online at LaPashe in a week or too.

The cost of the CD will be £19.99! Great value, I'm sure you'll agree.
Thanks for popping by today!

I'm off to look for a couple of challenges to enter this project in.
