I got inspired after I did my little moose and wanted to see what else I could come up with using the leaves #2 die cut. I decided one of the leaves looks just like a birds body. Why not a cardinal? Why not a boy and a girl in love? Sounds good, here they are!
Here is how to make them.
You will need four of the roundish smooth leaves from the leaves #2 die cut. You cut the stems off of two for the main bodies.
For the wings you put the leaf in the scallop oval punch like below.
Once you punch the end you can cut it around to look like the wing. The head of the bird is the 1" circle punch.
This is what you have left of the leaves. I punched the eyelid for the girl with the 1/4" circle punch and then used the spiky end (on the left) with the rest of the scallops for the feathers on the top of their heads!
I used the heart to heart punch for the heart and the Lovely as a Tree set, the big tree, for the branches of the tree they are sitting on in Handsome Hunter ink. The beaks you can use either star punch.
My two year old said they are me and my husband! So cute!
