This little birdhouse looks so charming with the holly bushes by the door and a present left by the pole and the pretty foiled striped paper makes such an elegant background to the whole scene.

You Will Need All The Items Shown Below.

For the Card Choose Colour -43 Creative Linen White.
For the stickers Choose Colour -41 Gold Glitter.
For the Ribbon Choose Colour -66 Moss Green/Gold.


  • Cover the front of the card with the foil striped paper, making the stripes vertical.
  • Place a strip of double sided tape down one edge of the wood veneer sheet, on the back and then cut a 7mm strip from this so you have a strip with tape on the back. Cut this into 3 equal pieces.
  • Stick one of the 3 poles to the centre of the card, ensuring it is straight and touching the bottom edge of the card.
  • Press or trim the pyramid layers from the découpage sheet.
  • Stick the base layer to green card and trim it to leave a narrow green border to all sides.
  • Stick the panel to the card on top of the pole and add the other layers using the sticky fixers.
  • Punch 2 circles from the holly paper. Use a craft knife to cut around the holly leaves, leave the stalk and the first curve of the leaf uncut so they stay on the sheet.
  • On the back of these, place a mini fixer in the centre of every cut leaf, leave the backing on for now.
  • Use glue on the uncut parts of the holly circles, stick to green card and cut around them to leave a narrow green edge.
  • Lift each leaf, remove the backing from the pad and stick them down.
  • Place these on the card, mark where the centre will be, remove and stick the poles in place before sticking the bushes in place.
  • Cut 2 red pots from card, add a row of gold dotty border peel-off and sticky fix over the poles
  • Tie 2 bows from the green ribbon and stick to the poles, trimming the tails to fit..
  • Mount the square greeting on white card and cut out leaving a white border. Stick little loops of ribbon to the back of this to make the bow then sticky fix it into place.
  • Add a dot or red glitter glue to each berry on the holly bushes and the panels, if desired.
