i have a ton of scraps in a box that i don't want to just throw out - so this week i've been trying to use them up instead of adding to the pile. i have been fairly successful so far. everything here - except for the frame - was either from my pile of scraps, or i've had it for at least a couple of years. i made the birdies body from some old chipboard flower petal pieces and his beak is an orange photo turn. it actually took a while to figure out what to do with his beak. when i was getting out a brad for his i eye i stumbled upon a bunch of photo turns and luckily i had an orange one that was the perfect size.
