I saw this on a shopping site and, loving paper like I do, I thought it would be fun to make a paper bird garland, measuring at LEAST 2 feet long. The idea is to have birds on a length of string, with beads (or nothing) in between. For instance, if your 'string' (which could be fishing line, ribbon, yarn) is 2 feet long, you might choose to put a bird every 4 inches. Your garland can either hang vertically or horizontally, and the number of birds included on the length is up to you.
Birds can be embellished with eyes, feathers, glitter, or perhaps cut out of glitter paper! You can make them double sided (or use double-sided paper!) or just decorate one side. You might select a color theme from your partners' profiles and go with different patterns of paper in that color. Birds can also be left plain--up to the artist's discretion. Please check profiles, though, to try and get a feel for partner's likes/dislikes. For instance, don't make a primitive garland for someone who is in to frilly pink things!
Bird garland must measure at least 2 feet long and can be longer (artist's discretion)
Artist must provide some way to hang the garland (loop at the top or on both sides depending upon horizontal or vertical orientation).
Birds must be made out of paper--different types of embellishments may be added, but base of bird must be paper. I would suggest NOT using anything super flimsy, unless that fits in with your design.
You will send one (1) garland to one (1) partner, and receive one (1) garland in return.
I am going to list this swap as international since paper birds should not weigh much; I will get partners assigned immediately after the last sign-up date so that you will know if you want to use beads in your design, as that would add more weight (if you get an international partner).
PLEASE send and send on time. Your partners are counting on you!
Birds are the harbingers of springtime--let's fill our homes with their beauty!
