January is a great month to start fresh. I’m making small changes both inside and outside my home. I added a bright pop of color to my backyard with a new bird feeder. I love starting my day with a hot cup of coffee as I look out my kitchen window and observe this fun project and all the happy little birds.

Step Two: Insert the Tapered Point tip into the Creative Versa-Tool and burn the traced design into the wood.
Step Three: Paint the roof, front edge, and inside top shelf area of the Birdhouse Box with acrylic paint. Let dry.
Step Four: Cut two pieces of plexiglass; one piece to fit inside the box and one piece to fit across the bottom of the box. Attach the plexiglass pieces to the box.

Dana Tatar I’m currently living in Virginia with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 9 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything; including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family.
