Well I'm a day late, but Happy Spring y'all!  I made a home decor to welcome spring, but mother nature must not have gotten the memo yet because where I live, it's still stinkin' cold! 

For this project, I let my Cricut and my Cameo have a play date LOL!  The birdcage is cut with the Cameo and is all paper; it is an image from the Silhouette Studio store for 99 cents (this particular one is an old one, but I did see a couple of new birdcage designs I can't wait to download and play with).  It is over 11 inches tall.  Another Cameo cut was the hanging sign "Home Tweet Home", cut using the print and cut feature, with the Andalus and Abbeyline fonts.    The Cricut cuts were the tons of flowers from the Art Philosophy cart, and the vines from the Home Decor and More cart.  I added some red tulle and thin cream ribbons I had lying around.  The bird's nest and the birds inside were bought from Michaels. 

After I cut and rolled the flowers, I assembled them along the perimeter of this flower pot dish (turned upside down), and then started glueing them in place with a glue gun.

Here are some closeups of the birdcage.

That's it for me today.  Have a wonderful day!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is wonderful!

I was wondering what the birdcage was made of and to find out it's paper too is just impressive.

Thanks, Sarah! It wasn't hard to assemble either. All you really need is a strong adhesive - I used the red tape.
