I wanted to create something cheery since the weather has been gloomy here. I created chipboard birds to brighten my day.
I used a sheet music image from the Graphics Fairy. This was printed on paper and glued to chipboard. Next I die cut them using Sizzix Birds die.
I inked the edges using Worn Lipstick, Distress Ink then applied Mod Podge over the entire bird shape and added glitter.
I glued these to painted clothes pins, added some weight to the bottom of the clothes pins (weights are necessary only if nothing is hung below the birds) and hung them up. I also plan to use these on my Christmas tree.
This project has been shared with the Graphics Fairy, ApronThriftGirl and Making the World Cuter.
