I purchased the above birdcage from Hobby Lobby and decorated it with some of the flowers I created with the Susan's Garden new flower release. On the top of the cage I created a draping, flowering vine using the Susan's Garden Forsythia dies.
I die cut the Forsythia flowers using two shades of purple card stock. To create the "vine" I used a thin green florist wire. Five pieces were cut and knotted together at one end. The flowers were shaped, then glued onto the wire using Ultimate Glue. When you glue down your petals, always use just a small amount of glue. If you use too much, it takes a long time for the glue to dry and the petals (flowers) will not stay in place. Attach as many green leaves as you want.
Susan's Garden Alstroemeria and Stephanotis. Across the bottom, I attached three Lilac branches. I use glue dots to attach the flowers to the birdcage. The pretty flowers I created really dressed up this plain birdcage.
