OK I'm back again with another Crafty Ribbons Favourite Top 5 project. This time it's a tree decoration using one of my favourite Sizzix dies - Tim Holtz's Bird Cage.
I cut the birdcage using chipboard, sprayed it with bronze cosmic shimmer spray and then daubed it lightly with gold acrylic paint which gives it a slightly shabby finish. The ribbon was glued into place then a backing of black card was mounted onto the reverse of the cage. The bird was cut from some music script paper that was in my stash and I inked the edges with Distress Inks. To finish I added a Poinsettia Sticker, a jump ring and some narrow gold ribbon.
