Today I have a little craft project that was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's recent post. I've had the original Take a Bough dies from Concord & 9th since they were first released, and I try to make at least 1 tree each Christmas season. Jennifer gave us some ideas for decorating these little mini trees. Here's this year's addition to my little forest.

A Little Bird Tree
supplies: 2 shades of dark green cardstock, Schoolhouse Red, and glitter cardstock, Concord & 9th Take a Bough dies, cardinals from Impression Obsession Birch Tree dies, an old wooden thread spool, dull gold organdy ribbon
Evidently the set of Take a Bough dies I have has been discontinued, replaced by THESE, which I admit should make it much faster to construct a tree, since in my original set there is some gluing together of the branches before building can commence. I took Jennifer's suggestion to use 2 colors of cardstock for my tree.
We have feeders just outside our living room window, and in the winter, we often see many pairs of cardinals there - especially pretty when there's snow outside to make them look even more brilliant!
