little birdie ornaments



We were so excited to find this idea from Living the Swell Life to make these darling birdie ornaments! We cut out our own similar pattern on thin chipboard and used sheet music patterned paper from October Afternoon (instead of decoupaging small pieces of real sheet music). But we did use Mod Podge! We also tried our gold shimmer Mod Podge which is gorgeous. it gives it a nice gold shimmer that is very subtle but pretty. We also added a small jingle ball on a jump ring for extra cuteness. These make great ornaments or gift tags!

Oh, how I wish I had seen this earlier! How cute are these birds you made! I just made a couple out of felt and framed them to hang for Christmas. Yours are so very much cuter! I just may have to change the ones I did!

Caa-uute! Love the shimmer - people rarely use it! I wish I could post these but I don't have a slot until AFTER the 25th! Waaahh

Very cute! I love the sheet music as the body and especially love the button decorations.
