Home Tweet Home Birdhouse Tutorial

Hi everyone! I wanted to stop by today and share this beautiful birdhouse I created using the Marion Smith's Designs Garment District Collection. My living room is decorated in birdhouses and I thought this project would add a perfect touch.

I created spray of flowers using scraps from Marion's Paper Collection for the sides of the birdhouse.
 I wanted to share with you the technique I used to create this roof.

 Step 1: Cover piece of cardstock in plumbers tape

Step 2: Emboss cardstock that is covered in plumbers tape
Step 3: Cover the piece in black acrylic paint and let dry

Step 4: Take a baby wipe and wipe off the black acrylic paint until you achieve the look you want
This is what it should look like when you wipe with baby wipe
Step :5 Take  an embossing pen and run it over in spots lightly

Step 6: Take embossing power and cover then heat emboss Until you achieve the look you are wanting

Step 7: To get the aged copper look dry bush patina paint on surface.

Step 8: Cut cardstock the shape of your roof and apply with matt medium.

 I hope you enjoyed this tutorial please see list below of supplies.
