DIY Paper Bird Cage …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a really cool project that was done by Krista Frattin from the 2014–2015 Artisan Design Team. She was published on our Stampin’ Up! “Get Inspired” blog.


The birdcage itself was created using Whisper White Cardstock (item # 100730) and a Candy Dot Brad Base (item # 132293)! In the spirit of upcycling, the base of the cage was created using scrap packaging paper from the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper packages. You will need a 1/16″ Circle Handheld Punch (item # 134363) and the Circles Collection Framelits Dies (item # 130911).




In step 12 you will see that I upcycled an empty Stampin’ Up! button container for filler inside the birdcage base. This was perfect! The only downside was that it was a bit fussy to add my flowers through the birdcage bars. Fussy . . . but not impossible. Just take it one flower and one leaf at a time. Be gentle so you do not bend or crease the bars.


I think Krista’s project is amazing!! CLICK HERE to read her full blog post … there is more!

Have a great day!
