Try It Tuesday~Jenni & Helmar together!!!


My project for Helmar and Try It Tuesday!!!  I saw one of these bird cages altered like a calendar {in fact it is on my pinterest site}so when I found one on clearance at Hobby Lobby I had to get it!!!  Had no idea what would be created~just started and this is what I ended up with!!!



The paper line is by Jenni Bowlin/Haven and the glue I used is Helmar's Decoupage.  I traced a pattern on the back side of the paper and cut it out. I then adhered my decoupage to the paper not the metal piece.  The glue is thick but it worked great. The big flower on the front is by Canvas Corp { love those}the frame is by Martha Stewart { also on clearance}.  The stamp is by Jenni Bowlin as is all the little extras.  The ribbon is by May Art's!!


The flower and frame mat are glued on with Helmar's 450 Quick Dry.  Hope you enjoyed this project ~ I'm up on Helmar's Blog today and ScrapStreet's Blog~would love for you to stop in!!! Have a wonderful day and see ya soon!!
