... that it's someones Birthday today, so I made that someone a little birdie for her Birthday.
I made the body, head and tail out of scrunched up newspaper and an awful lot of sellotape, the beak is made of a bit of card and the legs are floral wire. The idea and instructions are from Kirsty Allsopp's book "CRAFT".
I then coated it in a layer of primer.
Then came the fun bit, the actual decoupage part of covering the bird in lots of little pieces of decopatch paper using mod podge.
Once dry I sealed it with another coat of mod podge and there is was a cute little birdie ready to go on a long flight to Germany.
