Design custom wooden birdhouse & provide cut files for CNC/lasercut, to be used as wedding favor

Posted last month

I am looking for someone to help me design a model/cut files for a birdhouse, to be made out of wood -- either CNC or lasercut, whatever the designer things is best -- it both needs to be an ornament, and a "box" to hold two small ceramic birds. This will be a favor for my best friend's wedding.

This wedding is July 27th, but I'd ideally need this design/cut files done ASAP (hopefully before June 14th, earlier the better) so I can send the design to a place to cut the wood, for it to get to me and I can paint/stain the wood, and then have time to ship it off to the wedding destination. I understand the rush may increase the price, and am okay with that.

For communication I am flexible -- however the designer works, but ideally good comms. I'm good for calls/Zoom, but I'm mainly available by messaging most of the day (preference for Discord for messaging but I can be flexible). I may ask a lot of questions, mostly so I can understand what needs to be sent to a place to cut the wood, but also because I like learning!

I have some features I require, but I'm not sure on how they'd be achieved -- I'm open to brainstorming, because I don't know much about what's possible for 3D Design/lasercut wood in this way.

I need the birdhouse ornament:
- to be designed for lasercut wood construction, ideally with little to no nails/glue/screws (the way laser cut wood can kind of peg & slot together)
- to be roughly the dimensions of 2"x2" base, approx 3" tall (probably taller with roof), 3ish" wide, see included image, potentially a little bigger
- to be sturdy enough to hold two small ceramic birds & some easter grass & keep them safe (many guests will be traveling for this wedding)
- to have a way to open the birdhouse, that can close again and will be securely closed (I was thinking from the top/roof? maybe a sliding piece?)
- have a way for it to open that is appealing and will not be unsightly when the birdhouse will be an ornament
- have a way for a loop of ribbon to go on top so it can be hung as an ornament

Not necessary, but nice to have:
- have a place for a small design of the bride & grooms names and wedding date to go (this can just be a flat plane, or something similar)
- make it look more elaborate/nicer than a simple birdhouse

I've searched online for something like this, and I've found some things similar but don't really achieve what I want. I've found some cut files online of simple laser cut wood birdhouses, that are nice, but don't have a removable top/can't be hung...or I've found normal sized birdhouses with a removable roof, but it's not a cut file.

I've found a cut file for *paper* gift boxes (and a printable template: here (link removed) ) and the size and style is nice, but it's not a cut file for wood. This is the paperbirdhouse I've attached images of. I can provide many references for the many birdhouses I've found and what I'm sort of looking for, and am willing to buy any cut files from Etsy or others to assist the freelancer.

I'd opt for even the simplest birdhouse design that fulfills the "necessary" features, but the "nice to have" (more elegant, pretty) would be great to make it really pop on the wedding tables would be great.

I look forward to working with a freelancer on this!
