Paradise Blog Hop!!
Today I am working with Club Scrap's Paradise kit. If you haven't seen the adorable little parrot rubberstamp in the UM sheet - check it out - it was my total inspiration for this project. I love parrots, my kitchen is decorated in parrots...Love their bright colored feathers - makes me Happy!!
So I made two projects - The first as shown above - is a parrot in a cage within an explosion box. The second project - you are probably going to think I am a little nutty on the 2nd project - but hey - I think it is cute, so I went for it!! It is a parrot in birdcage necklace!!
So for both projects - I did some paper piecing to create very colorful parrots. I stamped the parrot image onto all the bright colored cardstock and trimmed out the pieces of the parrot and then glued it all back together. I did the reversal - to create both sides of 1 parrot for the first project. only 1 side for the 2nd project
Cut 2 hexagonal pieces, a larger one and a smaller one. Then trim 1/4 in strips of 12 in paper, you will need 18 of them for the bars and a couple extra for additional supports on the cage.
Cut a piece of cardstock just about the size of the parrot. Cut 2 circles a large one and a medium one. The large circle needs to be the same width as the cardstock cut. Once you add the smaller circle - then trim the cardstock piece to angle down to bottom circle as shown:
