Birdie Welcome Hanger

Summer is just around the corner and now is a great time to begin those 
 home décor projects to help ring in the sunny days ahead.  So grab the new
 “I Love Sunshine” Collection and let’s get started!

 First, I selected the Bird cutting file from the Silhouette Design Store.  
The design coordinates with the “I Love Sunshine” Collection.  I cut the bird’s body
 (cut twice for a front and back) to measure approximately 10”W X 8”H, while
 keeping the remaining components to scale.  These pieces were cut from
 various 6X6 “I Love Sunshine” papers.

 This next step is optional, but I wanted the hanger to be as sturdy as possible.
  Cut a piece of poly batting (thick felt or chipboard can be used also) just a bit 
smaller than the body.  The back piece of the body was coated with adhesive
 and then the batting was pressed into place.

The outer edge of the bird, the wings, tail feather pieces and belly were all
 inked with Versa Magic “Turquoise Gem”.  All of the pieces were glued into place, 
with the exception of the left wing, sticker banner and chipboard stickers. 
 The bird front was attached to the top of the batting with a dab of fabric glue 
 and then machine-stitched around the edge with a straight stitching.

 The center of the eyes, banner sticker, beak and left wing were attached with
 foam adhesive.  The banner sticker’s end was tucked under the wing and
 draped across the chest.  The chipboard stickers were clustered together
 and the centers of the pinwheels were embellished with enamel dots.

 A large bow was made from a piece of 1.5” grosgrain ribbon and attached to the top.
  One of the chipboard buttons was used as an embellishment for the center of the bow.
 

Two small holes were punched at the top left and right of the bird’s head. 
 A piece of heavy gauged wire was strung through to create the hanger.  
Add the bird to a wreath or hang alone to great your Summer guests!
If you love this project, be sure to PIN it!!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
