Bird House

Hey there stampers! Thanks for stopping by!
Today's project is one I've seen all over the net so I can't say I know who started it! It's super cute and uses the Mini Milk Carton Die and the 2-Step Bird Punch.


  1. Die cut Creamy Caramel card stock with the Mini Milk Carton Die and the Big Shot.  Fold all the crease lines and punch a hole with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.
  2. Put the milk carton together except for the bottom with Sticky Strip and sponge the edges with Creamy Caramel ink.
  3. Use the Slot Punch to make a slit in one of the bottom panels.  Punch it once, slide the punch over, line it up and punch again to make a bigger slot.  Trim the last bottom panel so it fits in the slot cutting the corners on an angle.
  4. Take a piece of Close to Cocoa card stock and punch with the Scallop Edge Punch.  add Sticky strip to either side next to the fold and adhere to top of milk carton.
  5. Add the branch and bird punched with the 2-Step Bird Punch and Bashful Blue, Sage shadow and Old Olive card stock.  Use a Dimensional on the wing and to adhere the bird to the bird house.
  6. Add jelly beans in Small Bag, tie off with a piece of ribbon and place inside bird house.
  7. Punch a hole throught the roof and add ribbon.
