3D Birdhouse

Hello Everyone!!! 

Manu here today with my take on the current challenge. This challenge is all about using your dies in a little different manner than what they are normally used for!!! It's all about thinking out of the box and making a good use of your dies to make something 3D with them. It can be anything, a box, a bag, frames, houses.. just about anything, as long as it's made with dies and have the 3D element associated with it. It's quite simple and fun.. right!! 
However, we do not see a lot of participation this time, So bring out your dies and think a little beyond the horizon and make something nice and 3D with your dies and lets see what have I made with my dies!

I have made a nice little birdhouse using my Spellbinders classic square Large die. I used multiple diecuts to make my base. Since I wanted a little bigger birdhouse, each side of the square base has been made using multiple diecuts and then formed into a sqaure shape. This has also helped me in giving a added strength to the base structure. Once the square base is done, more layering of an additional cardstock followed by pattern paper is done.

 I loved the little quote of Happiness stamped on the top!!! This sure is someones Happy place!!

Here's a little closer look of the birdie and the flowers cluster!

I have always loved this bird stamp!! and ohh yes, I like that little Butterfly on the top too!

I also added these cute little wooden shaped pillars from my stash and painted them red to go along with the color combination. 

I hope this has inspired you in some way and you might now be tempted to make something with the dies. I had a blast making this one and I hope that you all liked it too!!! Do drop me a comment on how did you find my little birdhouse to be. 
So get those dies out and get inspired!!!
