I have a thing for altering those cheap wood birdhouses that craft stores LOVE to carry…
Just give me some paper, glue, and an idea and I’m off! This is one I did with a lot of Tim Holtz goodies (full supply list at bottom of post).
The great thing? You can use whatever. Paper, paint it, keep it simple, get crazy complicated… endless possibilities!
Mostly mine is covered with grungepaper or kraft resist paper (inked with spiced marmalade – above the roof looks more yellow than it is!) and edged with distress stickles. Some bits of grungepaper were dry embossed and cut out to form my ‘fence’ and my tree.
The tree is inked with brushed corduroy + coated in glossy accents. I do LOVE creating with grunge paper! It’s flexible and tough. A perfect choice for me.
I didn’t record any details of my creative process on this project, but I *WILL* be recording a Christmas gingerbread house inspired video soon. I do love my holiday crafting…
Here’s a list of all the supplies I used:
