The gift (Birdhouse)

Did you see the card I made yesterday?  It's one post back.  Well, today I made the gift to go with that card.
This started out as a wooden birdhouse.  I sanded it, painted it and then adhered papers using Mod Podge.  The papers are from the Vita Fortunata pack by Quirky Twerp (same set I used for the card!).
I used the apron lace border punch by Fiskars to create detail for the roof and rail edges.  Red paint and a ring cut from the blue paper in the pack create a nice finish to the entryway.
I trimmed the side edges of the roof with scallop scissors. All of the papers have been sealed with a few coats of Hard Coat Mod Podge.
The bottom is trimmed with some velvet ric-rak. The flowers are Prima and Recollections, gems are Zva, and the pearls are from Queen & Co.

I sure do hope the recipient likes it!

Now to go wrap it all up so I can give it to her!
