What Is It ? I'm calling it my Bird House Box in a Bundle of Love !!

What can I say ?   When I saw the Bundle of Love Speciality Designer Series 12 x 12,  it was amongst the first things on my Wish List from the new Annual Catalogue.   I don't actually invest in many packs of DSP, but this pack had me at the get go.

So .....I needed to come up with a pretty little box.   I sat for what seemed like hours until inspiration finally hit me like a tonne of bricks.

So here it is Bird House Gift Box !  I have to say that I have not come across one, despite hours of trawling Pinterest and You Tube.   So just maybe ........its original ?

Bird House Gift Box Tutorial

This gorgeous little box is, in all honesty, not the sturdiest, but it is perfect for small and light weight  pretty little gifts.  I am normally a "sturdy box" girl.  But this one is the exception to my rule and I have to say, I am proud of it and I just love it.

So ................crack open some pretty DSP folks ... and mosey on over and take a little look at my latest video tutorial.  I do hope you love the design as much as I do:-

DSP measures:- 7" x 9 1/2" inches

Long side - score @ 1 1/2", 3", 4 1/2", 6", 7 1/2" and 9" inches

Short side - score @ 1 1/2", 4 1/2" 5" and 5 1/2" inches

Notch @ 3/4", 2 1/4", 3 3/4",  5 1/4", 6 3/4" and 8 1/4" inches

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Its much appreciated.

Enjoy your day - hope it's a creative one !!

  4. very cute. do you think it could be done with 5 sides? thanks for sharing with us. I really enjoyed this.

    1. oh, I forgot 6to ask, did you make your bracelet. it's very attractive.

    2. Hi Christi - so glad you enjoyed it. I guess you could do with five sides. Try it and see.
      The bracelet was a pretty Christmas present :)

  5. Hi Linda, liked the look of this box and wanted to make one right away and I did! I didn't have the pretty Bundle of Love DSP but mine still looks nice, though it doesn't have the delicacy of yours. Like the other lady, I was thinking Oriental Building - but 'Bird House Box' is as good a description as any. Thank you so much for sharing this idea, and the fabulous tutorial, wonderful!!! Best wishes, Karen x

  6. WOW, your box is absolutely gorgeous. It is the prettiest bird house that I have seen :) Love it.
