12 Days of Christmas - Day 2

Today's idea would make a lovley addition to a Christmas tree or to be added to anywhere that needs a festive touch!
 
It's a dove decoration, inspired by my Dad. When we were young we always had decorative birds hanging around the living room at Christmas. I'm not sure of their festive significance but whenever I see paper birds I think of my lovely Dad.
 
This birds was super quick to make: Simply cut out two birds and two wings with the Bird Big Shot die.
Each piece was then embossed. The bird body was embossed with Lace Brocade die (from the Autumn/Winter catalogue) and the wings were embossed with the dotty embossing folder.
 
To stick the pieces together I used the self-adhesive sticky sheets to put the body pieces together. This meant that they stuck all over and also the bakers twine and wings could fit in too.
A little glitter for the wings...


...and a rhinestone for the eye! What a sweet flock they will make.
