Flying Away with Lessology

Monday, May 7, 2012




Before I get into the challenge details I just wanted to share some news - this will be my last design team project for Lessology. I'm lightening my load just a bit so that I can focus more on myself, my family, and traveling more this summer. I'm sending special thanks to Yvonne Yam for being so sweet and wonderful to me. And I'm sending big hugs to Julie, Audrey, Amy, Laurel, Linda, Kirsty, Dora, Tesa, Mandy, Lisa, and Lynnda. They have been such a fabulous team to work with. :)

Now for the challenge details. This month's challenge is called - "Birds of a Feather Flock Together" - (make a project that incorporates a bird or birdcage).


I recycled some canvas and made a gift card holder. The outside is decorated with a stamped birdie, patterned paper, a doily, a button, a stick pin, and some Twinery Baker's Twine.

I'll place a gift card and handwritten note on the inside. It's best to hold the inside contents in place with a small wooden clothespin or place it all into an envelope. It's super quick & fun for gift giving.

Be sure to check out the Lessology blog to join in on all of the fun!
