New Home - Decorated Wooden Ornament

Birdhouse, Wooden Ornament - New Home

I have decorated this Wooden Birdhouse Ornament as a small gift for one of the teacher's I work with, as she has just moved into her 'New Home'.  I am very excited, as I have learnt something NEW using my Pazzles Inspiration cutting machine. It enabled me to cut the basic elements of the birdhouse without any need to measure!!!!

I bought my Wooden Birdhouse Ornament from my local craft shop that stock's the most delightful wooden items.

I decided to give the  birdhouse a lick of paint using a sponge and 
some Jo Sonja paint.

I then refereed to one of Klo's  pre-recorded Classroom sessions in the Pazzles Craft Room for instructions, on how to create a cutting file using a wooden Home D├ęcor items such as this birdhouse.

All I had to do was lay the wooden item in my scanner.  Scan the item and save as a jpeg.  I then imported it into my Pazzles software > autotraced > which created a cutting line!!!! It was easy peasy using my Pazzles software and soon I had cut out the pieces using my pretty patterned papers. 

I then cut out two 3D Butterfies, again using my Pazzles, and added a self adhesive pearl to the centre.  I also put a ring of smaller rhinestones around the opening of the birdhouse.

Finally, I cut out some banners, again using my Pazzles Inspiration and stamped some alphabet letters for my sentiment.

I am so pleased how this turned out that I am tempted to keep it for myself!

  1. So glad you are feeling better! Been doing this for ages, scanning in items is an easy way to create your ready made shapes for cutting. Looks very cool, looking forward to seeing more of your scanning and creating your own files :-) xxx

  2. Very pretty. I like the simplicity.
    Joanna I think you are the first I heard tell that they did the scan and then trace. I want to try (one day). I have some chip board albums and thought that would be the way to get the same shape correctly..
