#SimplyG45 – 3D Birdcages
By Magda Cortez
“Hi all!! Today I’m going to show you my #Simply45 project!!.. It is simple, affordable, and created in less than 60 min!! Well after thinking and knowing Summer is perfect for weddings, I came up with the idea to make these beautiful 3D Birdcages as wedding favors. They can also be used for special dinner favors or place settings with a little name tag. For these birdcages, I use the Secret Garden Deluxe Collector's Edition Paper Collection! It is so sweet!

It’s so easy to make by using the birdcage die from Tim Holtz or any die. There’s a lot of them out there and they all are beautiful.
Tip 1: Fussy cut some delicate flowers and cut extra leaves for more foliage. Also, add some metallic thread for more dimension.
Tip 2: Adding metallic legs to the Birdcages adds more elegance.
Birdcages always are in and making these was so easy using the dies.
