Good Sunday morning. I have a birdhouse project to share with you today using the new Sizzix ScoreBoards Birdhouse. I used Ellen’s Craft-a-Board to make the house and painted it with Distress Crackle Paint. I was very surprised by how fast and easy this little house went together. It only took a few minutes. It was what I did to it after that that took a long, long time. LOL!
I assembled the house and painted it with white picket fence crackle paint. I painted the roof with shabby shutters crackle paint. I heated both sections with my heat gun as I am always too impatient to wait for the paint to dry on it’s own. I attached the roof to the house to complete.
I decorated the house with Impression Obsession Door and Window set and grass, foliage and flowers. I cut one window in half to fit on both sides of the door and added one on each side of the house. I couldn’t resist adding tiny crimped blinds and finishing the windows with floral foliage and flower sprays.
I created a base for the house by cutting a piece of cardstock, scoring all four sides, cutting out the corners, folding all the sides up and securing with small strip of cardstock attached to each corner.
I cut several sections of Impression Obsession arched fence, grass border and My Favorite Things fresh cut grass. I cut out a small section of the front base wall for the fence gate opening. I attached the fence sections together and then attached all around the base of the house. I followed by adding the grass border sections on top of the fence and finished by attaching the fresh cut grass. I cut a piece of green cardstock and attached in the base and attached more fresh cut grass around the inside base. As an afterthought I added pieces of the Memory Box grand oak to the inside of the fence line to add softness and garden feel to surround the house.
If I ever do this again I will add the tree sections and then cover with the inner grass border to cover the trunk sections for a more finished look.
I hope you have enjoyed my Garden Birdhouse Scene. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
