Birds of a Feather ~ With Tutorial

 One of my favorite things to make are altered matchboxes. 
 Using Alpha Stamps February Kit - An Odd Bird, I came up with this little creation.
 
 A lot of the time I don't want to put anything on the inside of the boxes so I can add little treasures.  But I thought this mini bird nest was perfect and there is still room to add a little treat.
I love to use various beads for the eggs, it makes it look more like nature since no egg is exactly the same.

I have pulled together a quick little tutorial on how I created the mini wire birds nest.   
Thank you for stopping by.
 
This Birds of a Feather Mini treasure box is for available for only the cost of shipping in my Etsy shop.

LOVE the box! Your tutorial is really nice too! Love how you wrote the steps on there, (including the cheeky one) and the bird sound was a nice touch.
Now on to make some nests!
