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!
