Helsinki Paper Bird - Step by Step Guide
Posted by Emer on 14th Apr 2021
Create this beautiful hanging decoration using patterned paper and beads! A bird with hearts on the body and a hanging heart in its beak made from patterned paper. Assemble the parts with double sided tape. If you do not have double sided tape you can also use glue. Attach the heart to the beak with a piece of thread. Decorate a piece of thread with wooden beads for hanging.
Step by Step
Print out the template, which is available as a separate PDF file for this idea.
Cut out the template and draw two birds on the side of design paper intended to face inwards when glueing the birds together.
Use double sided tape or glue for assembling the two birds into one.
Thread a needle and push it through the bird's beak.
Place the thread between the two hearts and assemble them into one using the tape or glue.
Also use tape or glue for attaching a heart on each side of the bird.
Finally make a hole in the bird's back (at the top) with a threaded needle and push the needle through the hole.
Thread wooden beads onto the thread.
