Cuckoo crazy tutorial

I am constantly in awe of all the gorgeous handmade projects on Flickr. While browsing this week I stumbled upon this beautiful papercrafted birdhouse project from craftilicious blogger Teawagon.

 make your own birdhouse clock

Making time: check out this whimsical DIY birdhouse clock on Flickr... or make your own with the free tutorial atTeawagon Tales.
