A Bird in the Hand Swap

Happy Sunday all!  I just wanted to share my creations for Danielle's a bird in the hand 5 x 5 collage & nest swap.  This was so much fun!  We had to make a bird collage using some vintage materials so I used vintage wallpaper, French lace, an old button, vintage beads, and a bird illustration that is from the 1930's.  My guess it was free when you bought a gallon of Clorox Bleach, like those little bird cards that came free when you bought a pack of cigarettes back in the day.  For my bird nest I glued some moss and lace to the outside and stuffed the inside of the nest with shredded paper.  I then glued three, little plastic eggs to the paper and attached a little bird, flowers, and leaves to the top of the nest.  When I was ready to ship, I forgot that I had to attach the nest to something sturdy so I was kind of scrambling to find something cute to attach the nest to.  What I came up with was this cute, little jar that I stuffed with paper and more eggs.  I hope who ever receives my swap loves it just as much as I do!
