Baskets and Bloom Bird Box

Hi again! This was my second trade at Regional. I made this altered box using the Stampin' Up! Baskets and Blooms Big Shot XL Die. You just use the 2 basket pieces and modify a bit; I found the idea on Angie Juda's website. I also used the new Extra Large Two Step Bird Punch, the Trio Flower punch, and a 1/8" punch for the flower centers. I used Regal Rose cardstock and sponged on Rose Red ink, Old Olive and Certainly Celery cardstock and sponged on Old Olive ink, and Whisper White cardstock and applied Real Red Pastel to the bird's stomach and wing. Finally, I used the Basic Black marker for the bird's eye and Summer Sun marker for the bird's beak. I tied a grograin white ribbon around the handles and of course I used 2-way glue and glitter on the bird and flower centers! This will be another project at my open house. I hope you like it and please email if you have a question. Thanks for stopping by!
