Need to put some spring color into the last of the ho drum winter gray days? We sure need it here in Ohio! I posted a little pic of these birds a few weeks back, we made 100 of them for my Great Aunt’s 100th birthday. I had some questions on how we made them so here you have it…….
card-stock or thick handmade type paper
tissue paper cut into 4″ x 3 1/2″ rectangles
string and needle for optional hanger
1. Cut out a simple-shaped bird about 4″ long from beak to tail.
2. Accordion fold tissue paper (4″ x 3 1/2″).
3. Cut an 1″ horizontal slit into the middle of the bird and feed the tissue paper wings through very carefully.
4. Optional- using a needle and thread add a hanger to the nape of the bird for hanging. These birds float really nicely when hanging from a mobile or a tree branch. Or hide them here and there for little happy surprises! (Fauna and Robin hid them all over my grandparents’ house to bring smiles).
