For the Birds! 20 Paper Craft Tutorials to Tweet About

bird13As someone who lives somewhere where winter lasts entirely too long, one of the first signs of spring that I look forward to every year is hearing the singing and chirping of birds in our yard.  Their happy song lets me know that warmer temperatures have (finally!) returned.  One of the things my daughter and I like to do this time of year is search the yard for bird nests filled with eggs.  We have been patiently watching a mother cardinal tending to her eggs and today her eggs hatched and her nest is now filled with little babies!

Just as birds in our yard bring a smile to my face, birds in paper crafting make me equally as happy! They add a fun, whimsical touch to your projects.  Birds have been a popular motif in all forms of crafting for a while.  When I first started scrapbooking 10 years ago, you could find birds everywhere in paper crafting tutorials, on stamps, embellishments and ribbon…you name it, you could find it with a bird on it and the trend continues today.  Birds as a theme in crafting became so popular the concept it even made it’s way into the popular Portlandia Put a Bird On It episode (if you aren’t familiar with it, look it up, you won’t be disappointed!)
