Robin's Nest ~ Springtime!

I fell in love with The Robin's Nest many years ago.  My introduction to the company was at my local scrapbook store. They had Dew Drops on the counter! I bought a bottle of each color! 

The Robin's Nest pattern paper Glitter Spring Flowers & Dew Drops are featured in my shadowbox. 

To create this box you will need:
Shadow box
Robbin's Nest Paper Glitter Spring Flowers
Robin's Nest Dew Drops
Sakura Crystal Lacquer
Paper Flowers
Small Glass Shoe or other small items
Crafters Moss for nest
Wooden block for bird nest post
Wooden topper for box
Paint - Purple
Craft Glue 
Quick Dry Glue

Additional Embellishments optional:
Be Blooming

1 -Paint wooden pieces with purple paint
2 -Cut Glitter Spring Flowers paper to fit the shadow box and topper
3 -Adhere paper with craft glue
4 -Cover the flower on the topper with Sakura Crystal Lacquer - set aside to dry
5 -Cut a part of the pattern paper to wrap around the post. Cover the flower with Sakura Crystal Lacquer to make the flower sturdy - set aside to dry
6 -Adhere wood post and topper with craft glue
7 -Make a small nest with crafters moss and craft glue, add three white Dew Drops for eggs and little bird on top. 
8 -Add paper flowers, Dew Drops for flower centers, birds and other embellishments with quick dry glue. 

Be sure to check out the amazing collection of papers at The Robin's Nest!

NOW for a little BONUS project.

At the bead store I spotted this beautiful filigree butterfly.  Add a few Robin's Nest Dew Drops with E6000 then a silver pin back finding and you have a beautiful pin to add to your spring accessories!
