I know it is not a newly released product, but I love Basic Grey's "Urban Prairie" Collection and just had to share this project I made earlier in the year. I cut the two love birds out a number of times from BG's "Meadow" Patterned Paper and then layered them with glue dots for dimension. The heart inside the cage and the cage itself were cut with the Cricut. The heart is connected to the birds with adhesive and the heart is connected to the cage with a bead laden hat pin.
It is hard to see in the photo but the white paper is 110 pound white glossy which adds the structure this type of project really needs in order to be free standing and durable.
As the side view shot shows, the cage is cut and layered 6 times, with the center portion of bars removed except for the first and last layers so the birds had somewhere to hang. I plan on using this for a Valentine's Day decoration as like it to much to giveaway!
Thanks for looking,
