I so enjoyed making the birdhouse for yesterday's TLC challenge, that I decided to go one step bigger. I bought a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" stiff cardboard box at Michael's and basically recovered it. I had to make my own gable pieces for the lid since I didn't want a modern flat-roofed house. : )
It's for a dear friend who suffered a serious stroke several years ago. To open it, all she has to do is pull the ribbon and lift the lid. Guess it is not as easy as a gift bag, but I'm not a huge fan of gift bags, as a rule. I enjoyed making it for her.
