Control Freaks April Blog Hop - Mothers/Friends

Hello, Stampers!

Welcome to the April Control Freaks Blog Hop!
This month, we are celebrating Mom's and friends!
Whether you are arriving from Cindy's blog or just starting out here,
we have a great hop planned for you!

Ready for hanging! Can you guess what these little bird cages are made from?
If you said Stampin' Up! embellishment containers, you'd be correct! 

I covered the bottom of the container with a 1 1/4" x 8 1/4"
piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock using Tear and Tape.

Then I wrapped a 3/4" x 8 1/4" coordinating piece of Fruit Stand 
designer paper around the center. 

To finish it off, I snipped the top of the Pear Pizzazz cardstock
using the Fringe Scissors.

I then cut (4) 1/8" x 8" strips of So Saffron cardstock and
glued to the inside of container on each edge.

The birds are stamped on Whisper White cardstock
using Archival Basic Black ink and colored with a blender pen.

Lastly, I filled with crimped paper pieces
but little candy treats would fit nicely, too!
You can tie to hang or add a bow at the top.
Either way, it's a great treat for a Mother or friend!
