St Valentine Day birds

These birds are based on an old bird related tradition of St Valentine's Day. Each bird is hand made from paper. For the Manchester Artists book fair on the 7the November I sold a book of postcards containing the photographs of the birds and an individual paper bird for £7. I sold a fantastic number and really enjoyed the experience of the fair. In fact I spent most of my profit buying other people's work from the fair! I am continuing to make these birds for commissions and for further craft fairs, as well as expanding the paper bird idea into other pieces of work.
