Winter Robins Christmas Cards

Here in Europe the robin can be seen and heard all winter long. He starts his clear crisp song very early in the morning and makes the day more pleasant. These Christmas cards honor the cute little chap. The motifs were found on paper napkins and with them you can create these lovely sparkly robin cards.

Christmas Robin Card Tutorial Robin Motifs
1. You will need 2 paper napkin sides. Remove all but the top layer and use paper napkin glue to adhere the two sides to white cardstock. Let shortly dry. Then place baking paper over the motifs and iron them. This removes any wrinkles and helps the bonding of the napkin to the card even more. Now you have stiff motifs that you can work with. From one napkin side, cut out a square smaller than the card from the one napkin side and cut out an isolated bird from the other napkin side.
