Instructions: For a larger project image click here. Measure a side of birdhouse and cut four pieces of designer paper. I cut three sides of same paper and one different print for front of house. Glue three sides to birdhouse and press front side with finger to make marks where perch and hole are. I set Crop-a-Dile to 3/16" and punched small hole and then punch large hole with 1" punch. Glue this piece to front of birdhouse. Punch a 1" hole in a piece of mirror cardstock then line up smallest scalloped circle die and cut out with die cutting machine. Glue this piece around hole on front of birdhouse. Measure width of birdhouse base and then cut four 3/4" strips and glue to base, wrapping ends under base and gluing down. Glue a strip of rhinestone string around area where sides and base meet. Lay birdhouse on designer paper and trace around triangle top. Cut four pieces. Glue these to birdhouse top. Glue rhinestone string around very top, just under cord. Cut one Decorative Oval from designer paper. Clip center of oval and slip down over cord. Glue in place in bottom center of each triangle roof piece. Glue a rhinestone over each floret in oval.

Cut enough petals to form six Fuchsia flowers from burgundy cardstock. Cut six sets of stamens and calyx from mauve cardstock, add magenta glitter to stamen tips and set aside to dry. Using the flower shaping kit, mold and assemble the flowers. You may make more flowers if you wish to trail down the back side of birdhouse roof. Stamp six sets of leaves onto designer green paper with the Distress ink and cut out with matching die. Sponge edges with Distress ink and then coat with sparkle Mod-Podge and set aside to dry. Snip two small pieces of leaves and glue around perch, then glue bird to perch. Arrange and glue in place leaves and Fuchsia flowers on the roof to complete your project.
