• 1 cardboard
  • 1 glue
  • 1 ribbon


  1. This is great if you have small pieces of cardboard you don't want to throw away..
    Above is a picture of some cute little birds we made for our christmas tree.
  2. Just cut the cardboard approximately 2 cm wide and 10cm long. The curl in to a ball. Then use one as the head and one as the body. We have used some more little rolls in the belly of the birdie...
  3. Then use a few long pieces for the tail ...


This is a prefect little christmas decoration....
