Rye Rye has suggested I make this a monthly swap! So-here is #2.
Re : a small bird-between 3" and 6". Made from paper,fabric,felt,whatever medium you prefer to work with. Doublesided-so,if paper,for example,use something sturdy like cardboard between the layers. They should have wings separate from their bodies (not just painted or printed on),a tail (not necessarily separate),a beak,eyes-standard bird stuff! Give them either a hanger ie ribbon or a small,thin dowel to stand up on.Maybe ask your partner which they want their bird to have? Sticks might not make it safely through the mail-especially overseas.
Somewhere on them they should have an inspirational word (like "create" or "play").This can be attached to the bird anyway you like-printed or stamped,handwritten,glued on,a charm,etc.,etc.
Decorate your birds like crazy-bits of ribbons and lace,beads and buttons,pretty tissue papers,etc.,etc.
In the article in CPS magazine I got the idea from (Jan/Feb 2012) the author handdrew simple bird shapes,so don't worry if your birds are not perfect or particularly "realistic" looking.They are supposed to be fun,after all! :D
Any questions,feel free to ask!
Absolutely no flaking allowed! (Like I need to say that!)
