I was so delighted to see the mini blind tutorial in the Inkling this morning. When I was tidying up my hard drive over the holidays I found a link to one that I had never followed up. Time to rectify that - my dad's birthday is this weekend and he loves to watch the birds through his big picture window - which has a blind!
I used Bazzill for the base (next time I think I'd just use a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece, and mount it on the front of a regular card base), and some old MME papers I am still trying to use up for the rest.
The little bird is WhipperSnapper, coloured with distress inks.
I added little beads to the ends of the ribbon, to add some weight so that they hang nicely.
Maybe it's time I finally caved and bought a window die!!
