1. Use Cricut Machine to cut out each bird 2x at 5 inches tall. Use High tac to stick together at small points, then machine stitch around edges of birds. I cut off legs to add my own. Stuff each bird and finish stitching closed.

2. Use Adhesive squares and a bent paper clip inserted into bird at leg part to make bird stand.

3. Now you can decorate your birds. I hand cut my wings to fit each bird, one on each side.
