Bird house gift box

Good morning all. Hope you are all well and missing out on the bugs that start going round it this time of the year. Well, it has been a busy little week here at the Craft Den in Sheffield. Lots of yummy new stash arriving daily ad some fun filled craft classes.

We had a great class last night chatting, laughing and we managed to get some crafting done too! lol Thanks ladies for another great evening. We made this lovely little bird house gift box

What do you think? Cute isn't it? Just the right size for a Tilda, so might add one later..

We cut out our base template in white cardstock, scored, folded and covered with patterned papers added a bit of weathered wood DI here and there.
Cut a Sixxiz fence on the Big Shot, punched some foliage mmm think it needs a few little blooms...

Cut a roof, punched roof tiles with an EK Success arch punch, which I have christened the 'fruit slice' that is what it reminds me of! I know I'm crazy, Crazy Crafter. Any way the fruit slice makes great roof tiles and you will be seeing a lot more of this little punch as it is a little beauty, love it.
Thank you all for your lovely kind comments about my ribbon weave cushion, and thank you to those of you who have emailed to say you have not been able to leave comments, I have altered some of the blogger settings so may be you will be able to later, who know??
I have not forgotten about our Halloween blog candy, just life gets in the way some time. I could do with another six hours a day and even another day in the week, perhaps..3 day weekend to give me chance to catch up.
While I get the blog candy sorted you could put your thinking caps on to guess what Ava's Halloween costume is this year.
