Graphic 45 
Lost in Paradise
Bird Cage 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a 3D paper Bird Cage
 featuring the ever so STUNNING 
Lost in Paradise Collection.

I love this collection, it puts
 you in a Tropical state of mind!
 It is so vibrant and pretty. I love all
 the gorgeous bird, floral and leaf imagery,
 lots to fussy-cut! I created this bright 
and colourful piece with my Silhouette, 
cutting dies, flowers, sisal, artificial 
moss and plastic fruits.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies:
Silhouette Cut Files:
3D Round Bird Cage by A Little Hut Design ID 26265
This beautiful birdcage can be used 
as a centerpiece, a tea light holder or
 any spring related decoration. 
The largest size it can be is: 7" x 12" 
(17cm x 30cm)

Various Cutting Dies
Red Double Sided Tape
White Sisal 
Artificial Moss
Metal Chain
Chipboard Window
Embossing Powder
Resin Ladder and Bird Bathtub
 Branches (paint these randomly
with some white gesso) 
Flat Back Pearls
Plastic Fruits (peaches and acorns)
Tim Holtz Transparent Wings

Cut a bird cage from the pattern sheets 
and assemble accordingly. 
Note: the cage itself is not shown in 
the photo only the top and bottom 
pieces, I accidentally deleted it in 
during editing...(I guess this sort of 
thing happens haha.) 

Cut a few die-cut shapes for 
decoration and layering.

Fussy-cut some of the elements
 from the 12x12 paper pad. 

Add some sisal and artificial moss
 on the inside of the cage. Place the 
big fussy-cut birds on the inside in the centre. 
Tip: No need to glue them just let them sit
firmly on the sisal and artificial moss.

Emboss the cute little chipboard window 
and adhere to the open piece of the cage.

Layer the the fussy-cut birds, 
leaves, die-cuts, branches, flowers 
and plastic fruits. Place one of these 
clusters on each side.

Add some metal chain to
 the top of the cage.

Layer some more fussy-cut birds, 
leaves, die-cuts, branches, flowers 
and plastic fruits. Add to the top
of the bird cage.

Prima/Julie Nutting
Princess Castle 
with Aurora

I am so excited to share with you all my Princess Castle 
featuring the lovely Pink paper collection from Julie Nutting for
 our Prima older collections feature today. I really enjoy creating 
cards with the sweet Julie Nutting dolls but now and again I love
 staging them too, like this Castle I made with the beautiful Aurora
 doll stamp, I mean what would a castle be without a princess right?!
 I created this piece with my Silhouette (the design ID 119171 for
 the castle, assembly instructions here and design ID 10713 for the
 crown, if you have the machine and would like to try this out) and
 some cutting dies. I coloured Aurora with the Julie Nutting Hair &
 Skin Tones Watercolor Pencils and I dressed her up from the beautiful
 pattern sheets in the paper collection, some pretty lace and ribbon. 
I adorned the castle with pretty die-cuts, die-cut butterflies, die-cut
 bows, pins, paper straws, acrylic pendants, chain, ribbon, string,
 beautiful crown embellishments by Franck Garcia and gorgeous 
Prima flowers, the flowers used are also from older collections.
