Just Us Girls #121 valentine's themed template/3D...LoveBirdHouse...and announcement and the WINNER!

Hello love birds!  February is looming which brings the pink and red out in me....this week the Just Us Girls gang is challenging you to make a 3D/template project with a valentine's theme. 

Recently on a room clean up with my daughter's we came upon a wood birdhouse that she was done with.  I asked {ok, begged a little} could I PLEASE have it for valentine's day?  I have this idea of making holiday houses and when these cute alterable plain wood "birdhouses" come along in so many cute designs and for right around a dollar each at Michaels, only time and inspiration can hold me back!  In this case, I just recycled an old project of my daughter's!

I pumped up the roof with some gorgeous red and pink BUTTONS to serve as shingles and cute trims and papers to finish off the sides and back of the house!

Speaking of BUTTONS...I have an exciting announcement to share...I was invited to join the amazing crafters of the Buttons Galore and More Button Bevy design team!!!!  I am thrilled to be a part of the Bevy and I can't wait to share my button projects with you in the coming months!

 A girl could go wild using red, pink, white and hearts ya know? And you know I couldn't resist red glitter glue to outline the heart-shaped door right?!

This LoveBirdHouse is right at home among the pink and red on our sideboard cabinet.

Now it's your turn!  Check out the inspiration from Just Us Girls:

LOVE the bird house! I just picked up a small one from Michaels as well! I had thoughts of Valentine as well, thanks for the inspiration!

Great job with this week's challenge.

Oh my goodness, that is a table full o' sweetness! Love your button shingles and can't wait to keep seeing your holiday birdhouses as the year progresses. You're making me miss the holiday table I used to set up and change with each a very good way! :>
