Other Supplies : Jet Black Stazon Ink 99704

Instructions : 1. Because of the rustic nature of this project, most of the project is done “free style” to create the look. Follow these very general instructions only to guide your own creative process.
2. Stamp Bird House Border three times onto Cream cardstock using StazOn Ink. Color as desired and trim around birdhouses using decorative scissors (or tear for an even more rustic look). Ink birdhouse pieces with various inks to achieve rustic look.
3. Attach these pieces to a strip of burlap using redliner tape. Press firmly to assure a good bond between the paper & fabric. Trim burlap to desired width & fray edges by removing some of the vertical threads.
4. Place two rows of redliner tape at the very top (back) of the burlap strip & fold over twig. Press firmly to assure a good bond between the two layers of fabric.
5. Wrap wire around twig a few times, form hanger as desired, and run to other side of twig (wrap a few times to secure opposite side). Tie a bow of raffia around wire hanger.
