Project by Cheryl
Birdhouse Giftset(Bag, and Card) made with the Cindy Loo Cartridge and the Cricut Expressions Machine!

To make the Card you will need:
Pink,brown, and white cardstock
Embellishments:ribbon,lace,buttons,roses,trims,swirls,and butterfly gem
Step 1-birdhouse(page 67)
Pink Cardstock 12 x 12 cut at 5 3/4 (FIT TO PAGE ON) (BORDER ON)(REAL DIAL SIZE ON) this will be the card base!
Step 2
Brown cardstock 12 x 12 TURN OFF (FIT TO PAGE)(BORDER)(REAL DIAL SIZE)
Step 3
Follow step 1 using brown cardstock this will be the inside of card(this will make it sturdy)
Step 4
Pink cardstock (shift ) for inside layer cut at 7 1/2 inch
Step 5
white card stock cut at 7 1/2 inches (once cut then take scissors and cut across the bottom of the white birdhouse to fit to inside!
Step 6
Branches(pg 48)
(shadow on)(real dial size on)
1 1/4 inch cut 6 (set aside 3 for giftbag)

Make sure to score your card, and then attach layers, this card and giftbag are super simple to make and you will have alot of fun doing this project I know I did!! :)
I glued all lace,ric rac,trim, buttons,flowers,leaves and bow to card front. I then added some swirls.
for the inside I used more lace,ric rac,ribbon,roses,and trim. I then added a frame with happy birthday stamped and a gem butterfly. I left the left inside page white so there would be room to write.
Using Cindy Loo Cardtridge
12 x 12 pink cardstock cut 2 at 7 3/4 inch page 67 (you can get both pinks for front and back)
Step 2
12 x 12 brown hit( shift )then cut 2 at 7 3/4
You should have 3 extra branches from step 6 on the card cuttings!
Now you will want to Decorate to your liking :)

Step 4
cut piece of pink cardstock to measure 3 1/4 x 10 1/2 this will be the bottom of your birdhouse giftbag
Step 5
score at 1/2 inch along the length (10 1/2 ) then flip and score again at 1/2
Step 6
score at 3 1/2 inches, then at 6 inches
step 7
cut like I did in picture below and then add double sided sticky tape like in picture ! do this tto both sides!(I will be back to add the pic )
