Birds of a Feather
I used the cardboard cutouts to trace the images on the paper, then cut out paper and attached it by using Stampin Up!'s SNAIL adhesive, then used hot glue to assemble the three parts of the birds (beaks, bodies, tails).
My husband and I gathered real twigs from the local park to make the tree and I just added coordinating ribbons so the birds appear to by flying through the tree. I also made coordinating flowers to decorate the vase.
The vase is filled with bags tightly pushed into the vase to hold the twigs in place. There are light green rocks on top of the vase to hide the bags and give the illusion of grass.
We have the birds on a little table and it is the first thing people see when they walk in the door. It's hard to see in the picture, but it coordinates well with the yellow walls of our living room.
