In thinking about what we thought might be fun as a focus feature for this month's "CP Creative Weekly", we turned to Pretty Party's soft spoken friend, Blue Bird. This sweet feathered creature captures the delight of just about every person she meets. She's also as pretty as can be, and the perfect shade of eggshell blue. So, we put our designers to the challenge of finding her a home, layouts, cards, boxes, wherever...
To start us off, Rahel Menig shows what it takes to create a little birdie album with wings and a note of "tweets"...
Draw a shape on a piece of scrap paper, that looks somewhat like a cute little birdie. Remember, that you want enough space to be able to write little tweets or quotes, so make the body of the birdie big enough. Bonus, this will make your bird shape look even cuter ;)
Cut out your pattern and assemble your paper. Clip them together and use your pattern to draw the shape on your pretty paper. Cut out the bird. If you have difficulties with the thickness, simply divide the amount of paper in half and do the step twice.
Next, if you have a sewing machine, sew together the bird by its tale. I started a few times to get that 'feather look' from the excess thread. If you don't have a sewing machine use your staple or a brad/eyelet!
"If you could find a home for Crate Paper's Blue Bird, where would it be?"
It truly can be in any crafty context as long as it involves the idea of "birds". How might you go about the idea of basing a project's theme from that of the very cute and adorable, blue bird? Would you tuck her in a cage, dress her up with paint/glitter, and parade her with flowers and ribbon?
