We sent a member of our sample making team the New Studio Light Birdhouse MDF kit.
The kit comes with easy to assemble MDF birdhouse, 4 doubleside A4 patterned papers, a sheet of die cut butterflies and flowers, a sheet of vintage tags and vintage photographs.
Here is what Linda created...
I first assembled the MDF birdhouse to see how easy it assembled and I must say it was so easy and everything slotted into where it should go! There is also instructions on the back of the front sheet.
Using brown acrylic paint, paint all the edges of the pieces, when painted set to one side to dry. They take the paint really well and dried very quick too.
The papers are beautiful and take ink really well. Covering all the pieces and then sanding the edges to give a shabby chic/vintage feel to the birdhouse.
Mod Podge Matt was used to adhere the paper to the MDF>
Before assembling the pieces using Ranger Distress Ink Vintage photo distressed all the edges.
As the paper wasn't used on the slots it assembled really quick and to add extra staying power PVA was used to secure the pieces.
The butterflies and flowers were distressed with Ranger Distress Ink Victorian Velvet.
A flourish was cut out with some of the paper and attached to the front of the birdhouse and the flowers arranged around the front with gems added to the centres. To finish off the front a butterfly was added.
To one side of the roof a flourish, flower and butterfly were added.
To finish off a bird tag was added which has also been distressed with Victorian Velvet.
After decorating the birdhouse there is still plenty of embellishments and paper left over to make a couple of cards and tags. Easy to assemble and papers are beautiful as they take Distress Ink really well.
