Milk Carton Bird House filled with Jelly Bird Eggs

This is another of the fun projects we will be doing at this months stamp camp. I used the Milk Carton Bigz L Die (a Stampin' Up! exclusive die) to make the milk carton. I stamped the milk carton with the Woodgrain Background stamp before putting it together. I normally stamp just the birds feet on the front of the bird house before assembly, but since I forgot I just stamped it on a Crumb Cake scrap so I would not have to be so fussy about cutting it out. (actually I think Donna stamped it and Denise cut it out, since they were over when I was making the sample). I have been wanting to make this for a couple of weeks, but couldn't find the small Jelly Bird Eggs, I didn't want the large Jelly Beans. Anyway, the birds body was stamped on So Saffron, cut out and attached with a Stampin' Dimensional. To make the hole, fold up one bottom flap and punch. When assembling make sure the punched piece is between the top and bottom flap so it does not show. I only put adhesive on one side of the opening at the top, so this does still open like a milk carton. The roof is just seven rows of Chocolate Chip card stock punched with the Scalloped Edge punch and sponged.
