Personalised gifts are the best, especially when it's time to give something special to one of the most special people in someone's life; Mom! What I love about this birdhouse craft (besides how cute it is, obviously!) is how easy it is to customise it. 

You can change the colours to the kid's favourite ones and it will still look just as adorable. Have a look at this Cupcake Liner Bird Craft to check out how it would look with purple and green birds.

STEP 2: Put the birdhouse together

Now take your glue and attach the house shape to the background paper. Glue the circle to the top section of the birdhouse. Remember this circle acts like the bird's house door!

Take your cloud piece with your note and glue it to the top of the paper, towards one side, left or right. You can either use the pre written note or use the cloud shape as a template and write your own. 

Now take the all-purpose glue and glue on the popsicle sticks to form the roof of the house and the floor, on the bottom.

STEP 3: Cut your cupcake liners

Taking your yellow cupcake liner, start cutting along the edges to create a sun. Glue the sun piece on top of your page.

Then to make the birds, grab the larger cupcake liner and the other smaller one as well, and cut both in half.  Cut one half of the larger cupcake liner in half again and then in half again until you're left with 1/8th of that piece. (see image below)

STEP 4: Make your cupcake liner birds

To make the mummy bird take the 1/2 piece of the smaller liner and add it to the centre of the 1/2 larger liner. Glue in place. 

To make the baby bird take one of the 1/8th piece of the standard size cupcake liner and add it to the centre of the ½ smaller liner. Glue in place.

Taking your yellow paper, cut out two triangle shapes. These will be used as the beaks. Add final touches to your mommy and baby bird by gluing google eyes and one yellow beak to each bird. The beaks are made by cutting out two triangles from your yellow paper.
