This video was made with Mother’s Day in mind, but this box would make a great gift idea for birthdays, anniversaries, or for anyone who likes flowers! Its small size is great for filling with candy or other small gifts, such as jewelry, and being handmade makes it even more special 🙂

Paper Birdhouse Tutorial

A new video just went up! It shows how to create a cute little paper birdhouse, which you can fill with candy and give to your mom for Mother’s Day!

 
You could also make these for other occasions, of course – I think they’d be great for Easter, too.
