Nutcracker Sweet Birdhouse

It has been a loooong time since I last blogged. I have been using Facebook to upload photos of my work recently. I find it really quick and easy and I don't have to go into huge detail. Anyway, I have decided to blog this particular project.
It is a birdhouse and has been created entirely from double-sided paper (except the little fence).

The paper that I have used is Graphic45 Nutcracker Sweet, which I got from the lovely Kate at I just love Graphic45 paper. The collections are so detailed, that they make creating any project a joy. The roof tiles are made up of about 160 hearts. I have edged all of  the tiles with glitter. I have agreed to do this as a day workshop in December. I hope that I haven't bitten off more than I can chew!
