There's No Place Like Home

I got the new Graphic 45 Magic of Oz papers and I love them!  I was thinking that it would make a cool decoration for a bird house...sooooo...

This is the front.  Yes, I know there is no hole for the birds...I have to add that...I just haven't figured out how or if I am going to do it...I added a Tim Holtz post "door knob" and Prima bling.  I used Fiskars punches for the roof.  I made the house with a template from Torie Jayne...you can get it here.

Here is the other side.  Don't you just love this paper?  I created a base for the house, and used my Tim Holtz Sizzix die for the fence.

The back of the house...I put flowers in the corners of the house behind the fence.

I decided that the roof needed to be a lid, to hold a mini album.  I will show that in a minute.

Inside is "finished".  The border on the bottom says "There's no place like home".

I found the cutest little tutorial for this mini here by Irit Shalom's Designs.  Hers would have been 4x6", I needed it smaller, so mine is 4x4".

It opens...

And you can unfold it up and down.  Then...

Two flaps open.  I made pockets in the upper and lower corner, and punched simple tags for it.

Here is the back.

Thanks for looking, have a crafty day!
