Paper Birds

I've had this thing for pretty papers, lately.  I'm sort of.... collecting them.  :) 
Imagine how thrilled I was a couple of weeks ago when I started buying ones colored and patterned by Spring!

This morning Maddie and I played with birds.

We both made a template out of construction paper,

then traced that onto the pretty stuff.

We chose another color for wings,

then I slit a hole inside the bird's body, and in went the wings.... and a tail for some.

We used a small holepunch, and added thread.

Hooray for cheerful and bright!


  1. These are beautiful. We may make some of our own to hang from our windows!


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
