CSCC #`13, Anything Goes...

Hello Friends!
Happy Sunday to you all!
This is Vinita here.
Today I am sharing an altered bird house which I have created first time:) as an DT post for Catchy Challenges and the theme is anything goes!

First of all you can take any size of recycle box.
 I cut off the one side part of it as shown in the picture.
Then I took a wedding invitation card, I have a lot of scraps in my stash. Measure according to your box width and height and then same measure it again from the top. Now for the hut shape I measured 2'' panel from the top and created a middle point and draw a triangle shape and for the flap I measured 0.7" and cut it now.
  Now paste both the panels.

 Traced this house template on the PP. Covered it with patterned paper from each and every side as shown in the picture. I cut a through a circle at one side to create a window for the bird. I love these  papers and it coordinated so well.
 I made a flap as the part of roof for the bird house. I cant really give precise measurements as it depends on the size of your box.

Now the fun part begin. Decorate your bird house. I decorated with some laces, pearled wire, leaf borders(distressed them), jute lace, borders, handmade flowers and some are from my stash. I distressed the circle edge and some of my rose flowers too.
This beautiful altered birdhouse would be a lovely d├ęcor item in any house. Use it to decorate your desk, use it as a special pencil holder, or just give it away as a piece of art.
 This is the front side.
 To open the box I added a flower, lace, pink colored ribbon.

I made my own nest out of packaging material and gesso it to create some interest.

 Here is the inside:
  Don’t you think this would make just the sweetest handmade gift?  I absolutely adore it!
So guys, I hope you really enjoyed the tutorial!
