Blue Birds Of Happiness Gift Box Created with Fleurette Bloom SVG Cutting Files, Printable's, Papers, SVGcuts and Trendy Twine

I had some fun today playing with the Fleurette Bloom "Little Critters Kit/Collection".  I used the blue bird and the blue bird digital paper for this project.  For the actual box at the bottom I used the  One-Piece Boxes SVG Kit from Svgcuts. and created this cute little blue bird gift box.  The collections  work beautifully together!!!  I print and cut all my pieces on my Silhouette Cameo.  So easy!!!
(this project can also be created on most other cutting machines)

I made a little nest for the top, using some natural twine, wrapped it around a scrap piece of card stock and hot glued it together, or you could easily pick up a little nest at your local craft store.  I added some leftover Easter candy eggs (little plastic ones are available at most craft stores).

I curled a bit of wire so the birds would be happily flying above their nest.  For a finishing touch I added some of my favorite twine "Trendy Twine"  for edging and a cute little bow with a button in the middle.

Simple, cute and easy to create!  I think this would make a great gift box for Mothers day, a new baby, these would be so cute for the tables at a baby shower too, etc.  Hope you enjoy it and create one too! :)
