Spring Decor


This is a simple "WELCOME" sign that I can put up in my home every Spring.  I made this project for the "Think Spring Blog Hop". 


Items used:  Welcome - ZooBalloo Cricut Cartridge, 
Nest - Martha Stewart branch punch,
Birds - Blue sparkly fluff, lt green stickles for eyes,
Cocoa promarker for legs and beaks.
Variety of different colored cardstock
and a white pen for stitching.

This is a really cute project! I have got to buy that MS punch you used... it seems so versatile. I can never find it at my local crafting stores so I guess I'll have to order it online. Thanks for sharing.
