Hello friends!  I have a really fun project to share with you today!  I was trying to come up with some different ideas for my Valentine gifts this year and I found this adorable explosion box on Lori Whitlock's site.  I paired the cutting file with some adorable Doodlebug petite prints and how stinkin' cute is this!?

I used petite prints for most of the project, but I threw in a cute pattern from the Love Notes collection for the front of the birdhouse.  Doodlebug plaids always make me happy!

The roof is pistachio (my fave doodlebug color these days) buffalo check/woodgrain and the dot print is my second favorite color (cherry)!  Who am I kidding ... ALL Doodlebug colors are my favorite.  That sweet little bird on the front can be found hanging out with the DoodlePop Hen and Chick :) and the heart is a DoodlePop called Be Mine.

When you open the explosion box, a fun little bird is hanging out inside, along with two pockets made of lemon linen (that's fun to say, LOL) that would be cute for pictures, notes, or gift cards! 

So if you'd like to wow someone this Valentine's Day (or birthday, or any occasion!) you can find Lori's explosion box cutting file here .  Add a few petite prints, your favorite Doodlebug patterns, and some DoodlePops or Odds and Ends and you'll have a darling gift in no time!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
