Dream On, Dreamer Bird House by Lynn Shokoples

 
Good Morning! I've had this birdhouse sitting in my studio just waiting for the right collection. When I saw Primrose with all the flowers and butterflies I knew it was the perfect choice. I had so much fun with this project!
 

For the flowers I chose some of the pieces from the Noteworthy collection and then layered them with the flowers from the 12x12 Chipboard. They added such great dimension to the project.


For the roof I cut strips of paper from the 6x6 Paper Pad and punched the edges then layered them. I then tucked a few of the Noteworthy butterflies in to add some contrast.


BoBunny Supplies:
6x6 Paper Pad : Primrose

My sister is the manager of a Leisure Marching Team here in New Zealand and had mentioned to me some fundraising they were doing to be able to get to various championships around the country, as well as trying to update their uniforms, so I volunteered to make something for one of their raffles.

I had found this in the sales section at a shop I like to browse through - I love taking something "not beautiful" and giving it a new lease on life.


I left the base color as it was because it matched the papers of the Primrose collection beautifully. The drawer pulls were covered with the circle motifs from the Noteworthy collection and pearls/jewels added on top. I fussy cut the motif from the paper for the bottom left drawer and for its neighbour I punched two strips and then hid the join with some washi.


The oval frame is fussy cut from the paper and folded the bottom under to create a platform for it to stand up, forming a garden of blossoms and ribbon around it and cascades over the side.



BoBunny Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Smile, Memories, Bliss, Place, Cottage / Primrose; Clocks, Doors / The Avenues
Jewels: Primrose
Blossoms: Blush Pansy
Noteworthy: Primrose
