Ever have "something" that's been sitting in your craft room for who knows how long that one day you're going to make into a great project? In my case it was this blank wood birdhouse that I acquired somewhere along the way knowing that I could turn it into something cool for around the house. When the "Natural" paper collection was released from Authentique I knew that I'd found the perfect way to decorate the birdhouse and finally do something with it!
The top edge of the birdhouse is edged with coordinating ribbon with floral embellishments from Petaloo. The bottom edge of the birdhouse is trimmed with ribbon, with words taken from the Sticker sheet placed around the edge randomly to resemble stepping stones. The edge and bird post were inked with Memento Luxe Toffee Crunch and allowed to air dry. Most of the papers were edged with Memento Luxe in either Peanut Brittle or Teal Zeal before adhered to the birdhouse using Creative Medium.
