How excited we are to share this craft with you. I love getting to spend time with my kids and doing something fun, that they love as well. Plus, this also helps with their eye to hand coordination and simulates their imagination.
Let us get started:
First we cut the back of the candy box in half. Next, you are going to draw the outline of the bird on one half. The head is a medium circle, the body is an oval then a straight line for the tail. Cut the bird out.
Now for some color, feel free to color your bird any color you want. I let my kids have fun with it and do whatever colors they want. You can do multi-color, single colors, draw on wings, hearts, polka dots…below is a picture of the eBrush with a gold metallic sharpie. We used SP-01 adapter for our sharpie.
We are going to emboss our cards. Matty chose the multi-stripe patterned embossing folder Reilee the diamond pattern. They used the cut n boss to make emboss the cardstock.
Folded the card in half. Next the bird was placed on the front, they used a glue stick.
We used the glue gun to glue on the eyes. Matty asked mommy to help him.
They used the heart shape cutting die for the bird’s wing, you only need to cut one.
Once cut, glue to your bird to make a wing.
Next we are going to shape the feet, by making small bunny ears with the pipe cleaner. You will nee to make two. The cutting about a 2 inch piece of pipe cleaner and folding in half twice to make the beak. Use the glue gun to glue down the feet and beak.
We used special scissors to cut the edge of our cardstock it was then used inside the card to write the sentiment. Once cut , paste inside the card.
Then we wrote, “ You Make my Heart Sing…Love, …” inside the card.
We practice recycling, so all of our scrapes and extra pieces are placed in our recycle bins,
