Vintage Birdcage + Vintage Pillow Gift Boxes


Hello everyone! Welcome to the last day of the Graphic 45 + MayArts Ribbon blog hop. 



I am so excited to share this project with you today. This will be my last project for MayArts as a member of their Design Team. I created a Vintage Birdcage + Vintage Pillow Box Gift Favor featuring Graphic45's Kraft Reflections collection and colorful ribbons from May Arts: Here's the how to: 


First, I wrapped my wreath with a burlap ribbon. Then I cut my birdcage + Big 3D flower using my Cricut machine and an SVGcuts file. 


I made some Ribbon flowers using the Gathering Technique + Spider Web Technique. All ribbons used are MayArts.


For the Vintage Birdcage and 3D Flower, I used cardstock from Graphic45's Kraft Reflections collection.

So, what do you think? Are you liking this Vintage projects so far? I like it a lot! It is super easy to make, and super fun.  And the end result is super BEAUTIFUL. Hope you agree with me on this one.  LOL! 


Ribbons Used in this Project:

Yellow  Flower : HA27
Green Flower   KK16 
5/8" Sheer/Ombre - AE28
3" Satin Ribbon - KK16

Crochet/Velvet Center Ribbon
 Cord/Burlap

Look, I also created these Vintage Pillow Gift Boxes because I could not get enough of the Graphic45's Kraft Reflections collection. I decorated my Pillow Boxes with G45 cardstock, added MayArts Velvet Ribbons and attached a sentiment tag using the G45 Metal Brads. Voila..! I have created another beautiful Vintage Gift Favor!



Both the Vintage Birdcage + Vintage Pillow Box Gift Favors are great for Weddings, Birthdays, Dinner parties, or any occasion. 


I sincerely hope that you enjoyed my projects today and that I also inspired you. Please continue to check my blog; even though I will not be with MayArts Design Team this year. I will still continue to create projects using ribbons...That's why my blog headline is Cloth, Papercrafts and More.
