Today we are going to show you how easy it is to create a 3 dimensional card with the Collapsible Birdcage Dies. These dies are designed with notches that you slide the pieces into each other to put together the bottom, middle and top of the birdcage. We are decorating our beautiful bird cages with the set of All About Birds and Butterflies Diecuts.
Let’s make a card!
First, cut all of the pieces you need to build your birdcage including 4 of the middle section, 2 base pieces and 2 tops. We used the Layer Card Double-Sided Cardstock for the middle and Basket Double-Sided Cardstock for the top and bottom.
Next, put together the 2 top pieces and 2 bottom pieces to get started. Slide the notches together until they are even to form the top of the birdcage and the base.
The middle of the birdcage also notches together to form perfect 45 degree angles on each side.
You can add stickers to the inside of your birdcage before you connect the top and bottom to the middle.
Line up your notches and put your birdcage together. It’s not necessary, but you can add glue/ hot glue to the notches for extra sturdiness.
With your structure complete it’s time to decorate.
Our amazing set of All About Birds and Butterflies Diecuts contains 298 diecuts to craft with! You will have so much fun creating a beautiful scene in and around your birdcage.
These cards will fold flat to fit into an envelope, and then pop right back up!
Now, you have a unique card to send to a friend or family member to celebrate his or her birthday!
