Spell out your child's name this ay instead of with papier-mâché blocks. Cute to hang on the wall.
Paper birds. Machine sewing. Cut bird twice from paper then sewed the birds together to create a 3d bird that I stuffed with fiberfill and decorated. The little feet on the birds help them stand up: they are simply bent paper clips that I inserted into the leg space of the birds. I had first cut off the bird feet so that I could eventually insert ing lace, glitter, gems, ribbon and more to add details.
