Floral Birdcage

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

I am so excited to see that Heartfelt Creations has released foam paper for making flowers and there is such a fabulous range of stamens to choose from to add to the centre of the flowers.  When I saw this gorgeous birdcage from Imagine Iheartfeltcreations.us/…/debuting-art-foam-paper-and-flower-stamensf I knew that I had to make it with these flowers and I was very happy at how it turned out.  Luckily the Christmas Shop had opened just down the road and I was able to get the birds to finish it off.
