Desmond Squeaker Bird

Have you seen this cute and silly bird for Odd Bird Planet? I love his sweet yet goofy look.

I used Desmond to create this card and little gift box with tag.

The gift bag is made like a 2,4,6,8 box but with 12"x12" paper. So instead of the scores every 2 inches, they are every 2 3/4" - so the bag is a bit bigger.

I made the tag with two scalloped circles made with Nestibility dies. They are attached together with a cardstock strip and a brad - so the two pieces can slide apart. The ribbon holding the bag closed is threaded through the cardstock strip to keep the tag in place.

So why am I introducing you to Desmond (besides his cuteness)?

Well, Desmond is the star of this month's Lime Tart Full Tart Kit. These are awesome kits that were only available from Australia. But now Odd Bird Plant is carrying them here! Too cool huh? You can see the the Full Tart Kit HERE.

Well, the kids want breakfast before church - so I'm off. Have a great Sunday everyone!
