Wedding Bird Cage

I decorated this bird cage for a friend's wedding reception. I used the Fancy Flower Extra-Large punch to make the roses, and the 2-Step Bird Punch. The birds were punched in Shimmery White cardstock, and the edges were sponged with Elegant Eggplant ink. I punched 4 sets of birds and used Stampin' Dimensionals to give them depth. Each bird is made with 2 bodies adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals, and 2 wings -- one adhered to the front of the bird and one adhered to the back of the bird. Stampin' Dimensionals were used for the wings, too.
The roses were made with Shimmery White cardstock and Elegant Eggplant cardstock. The leaves were made with Old Olive cardstock.
Everything was attached to the bird cage with mini glue dots so the bride could remove the decorations and use the bird cage in her home. This was a fun project!


  1. What a cute idea! Just started following you.

  2. GORGEOUS! I have the Flower Punch, but have yet to get the Two-Step Bird punch. Didn't think I would use it. But, I keep seeing it used in so many unique ways. Guess I'd better add it to my wish list :-)
