This item was a year in the making!!! These metal boxes are suet boxes I got at the Christmas Tree Shoppe last year with the idea that I would make square card sets and put them inside as a cute packaging idea.
Well, that never happened and I really became tired of looking at these boxes in my craft room. So, when Cindy and I went back up to the CTS, we were looking for something that we could craft up and put in there. We couldn't come up with anything............except.........the bird food that is SUPPOSED to go in there!! LOL
So, I bought the food and crafted up a label and covered the food with a piece of patterned paper.
For the label, I cut out a piece of cardstock from a Nestabilities die. Then embossed this Inkadinkado bird and used Distress Inks to color in. I printed up the sentiment on my computer and attached them with twine and buttons.
Here's a side shot:
So, overall........not a real difficult crafty project, but definitely a cute gift for a bird lover!
Thanks for your visit!
