We headed to Geelong (Victoria) and then across the south-western part of Victoria to Portland. We were visiting a good friend there. My Husband and he go back over 60 years of friendship.
This is what greeted us!
An exhibition at the National Art Gallery was one.
From Canberra with a stop over at Wangaratta for a night, we arrived back in Melbourne for a few days with Hubby's family - we stayed with his sister, and after visiting other family and friends, and getting in some shopping we came home via the same ferry!
I did get in a class while I was in South Blackburn - at the Bellbird Paper Arts shop!
I made these: it was a Distressed Christmas class
The purpose of this post was to show you how I made the bird box for the Unstampabelles final week.
I firstly drew up the pyramid box bsed on a 3 x 3 cm square base
I allowed some extra for the side seams
I scored the bits to be folded, and then cut it all out
Each side had a triangle with a flap and I added red tape
I stuffed it with Mentos!
I free-hand drew some wings and a tail, and some legs and added them
Hello birdy! Eyes and beak ( a bit too big I think)
Now I am thinking I can make it a Christmas bird, or an elf!
So a box can be any shape really!
Why not go to Unstampabelles and enter - there is still time - it closes on Friday at Midnight!
