Susan's Garden Rounded 3-D Birdhouse

Love this birdhouse die from Sizzix - Susan's Garden Birdhouse dies by Susan Tierney-Cockburn, it's going to get a lot of a workout because I am addicted to 3-D paper crafting. 

Do not worry

Mathew 6:25 Therefore I say to you, Take no thought for your life, what you shall eat, or what you shall drink; nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

 6:26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

I used Graphics 45 Secret Garden Paper, made flowers using dies from Die-Namics, other flowers and leafs I made using my McGill Paper Punches. Ranger Ink color Coffee for distressing. Bird die is from Memory Box and I used thin chipboard under the pretty paper for sturdiness.

This second birdhouse I made the same way using the same paper from Graphic 45 Secret Garden but with tiny quilled roses. I highly distressed the rounded roof. I see I forgot to distress the bird.

~~2 Tweet BirdHouses~~

It's a woman's prerogative to change things, I changed the bird on the roes top birdhouse. Okay I am happy with it now.

I seen a few tutorials online about putting this birdhouse together, the way I did it is totally different. 

I was sick for two days because I was allergic to the honey I bought and ate from Safeway called Organics honey made in Brazil. It burned my throat right away and I got sicker by the minute after eating it. I was weak, could not hold my eyes open, nauseous and had a bad headache with runny nose, and eyes. Never thought I could get sick from honey. My mom says to me today, why are you allergic to everything? I had allergy shots for three years, still allergic to everything........

Hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love the birdhouses!! They are really neat! Thanks for the scripture, too. man, food allergies can be very scary. So sorry you went through this. Thanks for your comments on my Wildfire post. Yes, these fires have a life of their own. I pray they are all extinguished soon and the healing can begin. Hope you are doing great. Happy Father's Day!

  2. I saw those posted on FB and they are super-cute! I love that whimsical style! You are so right about time going faster than when we had kids at home! I still haven't figured out a way to slow things down! ;)

  3. Oh Wow these are just fantastic, love the papers you used and such pretty decorating with the flowers!
    So sorry to hear about your experience with the honey, that is terrible, hope it didn't last too long...... it is suppose to be good for you to eat honey that is made in your area, suppose to help your immune system, we are lucky that our friends make thier own honey


Have a wonderful day! ~Kat
