REFURBISH IT FRIDAY!

Well, it has been another busy week at the Nath house so I haven't progressed on my next RIF project that I gave you a sneak peek of last week but I did make another thing to put inside my shadow box.

I knew before I even started that I wanted a little bird cage for one of the cubbies.  I figured I would have to look far and wide for one small enough to fit but I came across this SVG file from My Time Made Easy.  You use svg files with a cutting machine like a cricut and a special program like Sure cuts alot or Make the cut.  The cage was a new release and I bought it the minute it was available.  It took some tweaking to get it just the right size but I finally got it worked out so that it just fits in one of the long cubbies.
I absolutely love it and I can't wait to make more in a larger size as a table decoration and as tea lite holders!
If you are interested let me know and I can post the exact measurements I used with SCAL to get it this size which is about 3.75 inches high.

Looks like this weekend is booked with drumline, piano lessons, and now my daughter has joined the ultimate frisbee team which has practice on Sunday.  I think I am going to be spending a lot of time in the car. Hopefully I will be able to squeeze in some crafting time....

That is so cute! And what a fabulous idea to make a cage out of paper if you can't find the real thing!
