How to... Make a bird­cage

Papercraft Inspirations - - PRINTABLES -

This del­i­cate dec­o­ra­tion isn’t tricky to make when you fol­low our sim­ple step-by-step in­struc­tions… 1 Cut out the bird­cage el­e­ments from the printed de­signs. You can change the length of the cage bars, if re­quired, then punch some holes at the ends to bring the bars to­gether us­ing twine.

2 Thread the twine through one of the discs by punch­ing a hole, and fix an eye­let in the mid­dle, as shown.

3 Cut out one of the birds from your print­a­bles, plus a few flow­ers and but­ter­flies – and put these to one side.

4 Fix a short length of twine to the bird for it to swing from and at­tach in­side the cage at the top. Tie on more twine to the eye­let to cre­ate a hang­ing loop.

5 Die-cut leaves and stick them to the bars of the bird­cage, as shown. Add the cut-out flow­ers and but­ter­flies around the cage. Fi­nally, add a sprin­kling of pa­per flow­ers from your stash for pretty de­tail.
