Angry Birds are Mad About Books!

IMG_5930

The youth section of the public library where I work has six large bulletin boards, that the Youth Services staff change several times a year, to fit a selected theme.  This is my creation for the current “Games” theme.

I was given the video game of Angry Birds to work with, and had to do a little research on it, as I had never played the game.  And by “research,” I mean download the free game app and play it!  It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.

I cut the lettering out with my Silhouette Cameo, to recreate the font used for the game that looks like paint brush strokes.  I also used the Silhouette Cameo to cut out the stacks of books inside the cardboard tube structure with the green pigs.  The Angry Birds are made with rubber Halloween masks I found at the $1 store.  The red and yellow birds are stuffed with paper and attached with T-pins to the bulletin board.  The black bird mask is stretched to fit on a black rubber ball, and suspended with fishing line from the ceiling.

I’ll leave it to you to guess whether I deleted the Angry Bird game from my phone when I  finished with my “research.”
