Okay back to the cute bird cage! Depending on the size you cut the file, it can be tall or short. The height of my bird cage measures about 7 1/2 inch tall from the very top to bottom and 4" wide. If you don't have a cutting machine, a PDF file is also provided. As you can see in the photo, the top opens up so you can put a goody bag inside like I did. There's 2 types of top available.

This one is a "Heart Basket"! There is also a "Heart Box" being released. I'll create a project with it on another day. You're thinking "whoa. . .that's a lot of blings going on with you basket"! LOL! Yeah. . . .now that I'm into jewelry making, it was fitting to make a beaded handle! Why not? It's something different but you can add a ribbon if you don't want to go nuts and add all the beads. . .:)

There's an extra heart panel included in the files and in SCAL, I just embedded the heart to the center of the box template and cut it so it provides an opening to the front of my box. I then added acetate (overhead projector film) over the opening so it's see through. If you don't want an opening in the front, you can use the heart panel as a regular panel as a decorative feature to the front of the box.

Do you see how I created the heart at the top of the handle? Well, I had made the handle too long so I improvised! I twisted the wire and shaped the top into a heart. It wasn't what I originally planned to do but it worked out fine. I actually really like it!!


Creations by AR also has embellishments! This butterfly comes in a set of embellishments! They are super cute and they will add a perfect touch to your Valentine projects!!! Check out the embellishments: Click Here Don't forget to check out the new template releases as well and the other awesome files at Creations by AR!! There are a lot of cute ones!!!
