Birds of a Feather—MFT’s June Card Kit Countdown Day Two!


Welcome to Day Two of MFT’s June Card Kit, Birds of a Feather! Release is tomorrow night at 9pm in the MFT Online Boutique. Be sure to stop by the MFT Blog for all the details!


I’m always so blown away by the pop-up boxes that my very talented team mate Rachel Alvarado does and the fact that my equally talented team mate Stephanie Klauck taught one at the recent MFT Retreat that I was inspired to do one for this post. I wanted it to look like the three front birds were sort of sitting on bushes in front of the bird house and I’m pretty happy with it. I could have added some grass to the dividers but I wanted to see what I could do with the kit contents instead.

I started by creating my box by scoring and cutting, then stencil Mini Cloud Edges on all surfaces that show on the outside. I adhered the sentiment in the form of the mid-month Free With $60 set, Simply Hello and Love You Die-namics to the front flap. Simple but perfect for these birdies.


Next I added the dividers, created and adhered the bird house, and cut the birds and added accents with Copic markers. I added lots of leaves to the dividers and then nestled the birds amongst the leaves and was pretty much done! Sounds simple and it really is. These boxes are super fun to make so look for more in the future ;-)

And that’s it for Day Two! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow night for the release of MFT’s June Card Kit, Birds of a Feather!
