Bird Feeder Shaker Card (zig clean color markers)

Bird Feeder Shaker Card (zig clean color markers)

This little birdie set got me especially excited to color and well – I wanted to feed them, because filling the feeder made me feel like perhaps spring IS on the way!?!? A late snow this year is causing me to neeeed some spring cheer!

Supplies for this project are linked at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links may be used at no cost to you.

I colored the birds in Zig clean color pens….(for the previous post about birds – click HERE.)

And the shaker is a homemade kind – just cut a rectangle, trimming carefully around the bird beaks with a fingertip knife. Alternately you could add the birds on and diecut them.

The sweet little flowers and butterflies in this sequin set are perfect for a feeder! And the feeder is simple to draw. A flat top and bottom, and a round lid and string. Easy peasy!
