Love Birds

When I saw these little love birds on Pinterest, I knew I had to have them!!

Well, come to find out. They are sold on Etsy for $34....not in my budget!! So I set out to make my own. And being the insanely impatient person I am, I decided to make paper ones instead of fabric. The sewing would take entirely too long for my taste ;)

sweet little paper lovebirds

I just love them!! I made their little legs out of some kind of white floral wire I found in my craft stash. I made a birdie template out of cardboard & traced it onto some scrapbook paper.
If you look closely you can get a sneak peek of my project in process there in the background :)
