a little bird house

I have been wanting to make a little paper birdhouse for ages after seeing them in magazines and on other blogs. It was the challenge on the bubblyfunk challenge blog that gave me the push.
I started out making a birdhouse with just the large bird on and a circle of paper to show the hole but then decided to cut the hole out (not easy when the house was already stuck together!) and add a couple of baby bluebirds inside. Of course then mother bird needed some food to take to her babies so i made a red worm for her to hold.
This is the first photo of my work that i have taken outside- I thought it'd be a much nicer photo if I placed the birdhouse in a tree in my garden!
