Tree Ornament - Shabby Chic Bird
Eyelet and setting tool
String or ribbon
Print and cut out template and use it to cut one (1) bird shape from chipboard, and two (2) bird shapes from patterned paper (one for each side of chipboard)
Stick paper to chipboard and use sandpaper or other method to sand and even edges (I use the BasicGrey Precision files which I LOVE)
Add eyelet and string to top
Cut another piece of patterned paper 5"x8" and fold into an accordion, making each fold about 1" wide.
Insert accordion into slit in bird's body and fan out to form wings
Here's another version I made using corrugated cardboard, paint, trim and sheet music
