Sweet Spring

{Please note: This has been re-posted due to a technical glitch with the Blogger service.}

We had a little swap over on the Papertrey Ink forum. Our theme was embellishments... that extra something sassy you can add at the last minute that makes such a sweet difference.

I stuffed a few glassine bags full of ribbon, twine, trinkets, and goodies for my friend, Jennifer, then tied it all up with twine and a simple tag.
The sweet spring birdhouse was created from a template I found here on Nichole Heady's blog. It was very easy to whip up and created such a darling presentation for the little buttons found inside. I have a confession though: I sealed the house totally shut with adhesive and realized too late that it might be difficult to actually get the goodies out. Oops! ;)
I stamped the twig and berry wreath from Wreath for All Seasons and punched the middle with a 1" circle punch. A few pearls and a Webster's Pages resin bird adorn the welcoming wreath.

Sweet treats for sweet friends... life is good.

Denise, what a clever idea! Sounds like something I'd do ~ seal the birdhouse so no one could get it without destroying it.
