A Little Bird Told Me

card opened

card closed

This little bird card was inspired by an avatar, proof that inspiration can come from anything. The wing swivels out to reveal the message, as if the bird is telling a secret. Directions below, if you would like to make one.

Supplies:
one small brad
scissors
double stick tape

Right click on the image and save. Paste in a program such as Word. Print out on a heavy card stock. Cut both images out.


Cut out a small white circle. Place the brad through the wing and the small circle (refer to picture).








With double stick tape, adhere the wing to the back of the bird (refer to picture). The double stick tape should only cover the small white circle on the wing. This will allow the wing to swivel freely. All done.

Jessica, I seriously think you should consider writing some sort of craft book. Truly, minds like your's don't come along every day.

I will certainly be making this little birdie!
