So Sarah and I were partners this round and we both picked the same nursery rhyme.
Here is what Sarah sent me
along with the bird on the pie, she included a bottle of buttons and ribbon that had a blackboard label. She also send a cute bird cage cut out wrapped with some rick rack and bobble trim. She added a cute mini gnome kit which I am thinking of zombifying! Thank you Sarah!!!!
Here is her altered version of the rhyme...
And here is what I sent her..
I forgot to take a photo of the stuff I made before packaging it....I made a bottle full of eyeballs I showed in the sneak peek and other things to go with each verse, along with paper birds for scrap booking, a pie bird and pot pie recipe, the "nose" which wasn't that great looking (haha) along with some honey and Mardi Gras coins and beads for money and jewels. I also included a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond because it had the word blackbird in it! It didn't fit the rhyme but I think it is a great youth book and worth reading.
Here is my take on the rhyme, I put it on a scroll and attached it to the bird's beak. By the way, the guts will spill out of his stomach, I crocheted them and crammed them in....as well as his brain, which is exposed. I forgot to take an "aerial" shot!
