Mother's Day Gift

I've been working on a little gift for my Mom for Mother's Day and I thought I would share it with you.
Here is how it started out:

It is about the size of a CD and came in a kit along with a square tin and insert from


Here's the finished front


And here's the finished back


and here how it looks open and folded out.
On the second panel from your left I used two small sticks from the backyard and some cool fring-y fiber trim to make the nest. I then placed a sweet cut out paper bird in the nest and decorated the "branches" with green leaves and tiny flowers!



and here's the backside of the panels.
Mom is doing a bird theme for decorating her house for sping, so this should just fit right in!

Thanks again to Sweet Shoppe Designs for the great grahpic that help and inspire me!
