A paper Birdhouse

Hi Everyone,
Hussena here to share with you my inspiration for our this time's Challenge # 4 which is "Anything but a Card or LO "....Well like my title suggest I am sharing a birdhouse completely made with paper using a template I found online in Pinterest ...And thought  this could make a perfect Valentine gift for your loved ones...It has a detachable roof & you can store candies ,small cards or message tags inside this & any personalised item of your choice..Its quite spacious that way :)..So here's a look at what I have created :-

And a side view of the birdhouse :-

And showing you the inside of the birdhouse with the sentiment placed (Unfortunately could not get a better picture of this!) :-

Supplies used :-

Distress Inks :Tim Holtz Broken China ,Shabby Shutters & Vintage Photo (Crafter's Corner)....Used the Koi Brush & Distress Inks to color the Leaves & the Flowers in the foliage .
