I wasn't sure if this was best here or in paper crafts but it's definitely art so here it is Smiley

I reused some of my received Christmas cards to make this 3D bird collage as part as a year long project to reuse/recycle waste in inventive (hopefully) ways and then document it on my blog.

are those rhinestones or hole-punched paper on the bird? i like the mix between the two materials and the unfinished wooden frame. very clean.

love it!  Nice composition. It looks so clean and scandinavian chic (I don't know exactly what that means, i made it up)- I like it much!

I should have said in my original post, yes I hole punched Christmas cards for the little coloured dots on the bird Smiley

Thank you babychel, whitebelt & Celery70.  I'm really pleased with how it came out. Smiley
