    So now I will share my gift set using the New! Singing Silhouette set , packaged up in the Caged Template!

    For the birds…

    Here is the entire set laid out for you to see 😀 It was all inspired by the ribbon on the handles of my project.

    You may be wondering what template you are looking at to package up my cards…..I turned the Caged Template into a BASKET!!!

    Is this not crazy amazing?! Talk about 2 templates in one.

    TO MAKE THE CAGE INTO A BASKET:

    All you have to do is take the cage “cut-outs” and “weave” them in between the cage “rails”, ensuring you alternate the weaving pattern with EACH strip. They are a perfect fit. Once you used the one’s you automatically get when you create your template, you would then want to cut an additional 16 strips 1/2 inch wide X 4 1/2 inches long.

    You will have 32 strips total. 8 Strips on each side. OR you can use less for a more whimsical look, with a less tight weave.

    TIP: It is easier to weave the panels BEFORE assembling the template. Just ensure you adhere the ends with glue dots. Also ensure as you weave your panels, that you alternate the weave on the panels to ensure you get an complete weaved look all around!!

    More details…here is the bow that inspired the SPRING colors!

    Hanging from the bow, I cut my choice of one of the birds from the A Little Birdie Cut File, which I enlarged a little, and stamped it using the branch and flowers from the New! Singing Silhouette set. I thought it made a nice accent to the basket, without COVERING the woven details.

    I cut some handles (I wanted 2) so I cut them 1/2 inch wide X 11 inches long. I attached them with pretty flower brads.

    The cards all fit perfectly inside the “basket”! Inside I also have a frosting bag filled with Starburst Jelly Beans, which matched my color scheme.

    Now for the cards!

    I created 4 cards, using the same color combination: Red, Leaf, White, and Yellow.

    Each card features a different bird from the set.

    For the LOVE birds:

    This is my favorite of the 4 cards I made. I adore the 2 birds facing each other in this set (you can stamp one or the other if you choose)

    I used the Caged Cut File to cut my bird cage, which I then stamped my cage image onto. I stamped the swing image as well, for my “love birds” to perch on. I added a bow to the card so it appears to hang from the tree branches.

    I added some flowers to the swing. I added a heart image from the Bringing Home Baby set.

    Perfect for the happy couple, or for the hubby 😀

    Now my 2nd favorite from the set!

    Failure….

    is not falling down, but refusing to get up.

    I used the sentiment from the Keep Strong set. Perfect for someone going through a difficult time.

    I loved the paper piercing details I put on this. The bird in the set is one of my favorite. I just used a marker to color the textured belly, and dotted the eye with a black fine tip marker.

    Chirp-Up!

    I LOVE this sentiment.

    This card is SO simple, but I LOVE it.

    I used the tulip image from the Sensational Stems Set. The bird silhouettes are SO CUTE! I added a little flower detail to them for some added WOW! I love having the ability to do that.

    Friend…

    One who reaches for your hand, and touches your heart. ( sentiment also from the Keep Strong set)

    The stamped my bird silhouettes in red, and colored the centers with some yellow. I stamped the leaf frond from the Tending The Garden set.

    Once again I used the stem and flower image from the Sensational Stems Set.

     I them used a border building set Paper  Pattern Pieces, to create my own patterned paper along the bottom. I love how it turned out!
