Entry #76 to 81 - NCM 2010 : Spring Birds

27 March 2010

I made cute birds and my inspiration was a portion of our bedroom curtain.

Materials Needed:

paper and pencil to draw a bird
cutter or scissors
cereal box or any cardboard
cardstocks in various colors, preferably the thin ones
stickles
hole puncher
nail filer or sand paper
Distress Ink pads or any other stamp pads you have
ribbons
printed cardstocks

A portion of our curtain were I took the inspiration


Procedure:

1. Free-hand drawing of the bird based on my curtain inspiration.  When satisfied with your drawing, cut and trace on a board and your preferred cardstocks.

2.  Cut plain colored cardstocks into 6cm x 13 cm and begin folding hill - valley - hill and so on.  The width of your folds will depend on the cut you made at the bird's body.

3.  Punch holes so you can insert a ribbon.  
I used my crop-a-dile since I made the birds using an illustration board.
