Christmas Bird Houses

I have had so much fun today, making these little bird houses
to hang on the Christmas tree.
I thought they would be great with some chocolate or sweeties inside.
You do know there's only 151 day to go !!

These are for this week's Winter Wonderland Challenge,
which is to make a tree decoration.
If you're a christmas fan like me, then you too will just love this blog,
so hop on over there and check out the fabulous creations
from the DT.
I used the excellent template from Nichole Heady
complete with easy to follow tutorial,
and just added a little, lace border to the roof edges.
The cute robin stamp is from Pink Gem Designs,
with the main part of the stamp masked off.
Design Paper is K & Co Peppermint Twist.
