Designer Tip: I love Glue Arts U Cut It foam for all of its possibilities. I especially appreciate the larger 8.5x11 sheets that I can use to cut different shapes in my die cut machine. It can be inked, colored, glittered, or painted. Think about all the shapes it can be cut into, with scissors and die cut machines. It gives you immediate dimension with an adhesive on the back! For this project, I used a die template and two different glitters and Glossy Accents to make a dimensional bird cage.

1. To make bird cage, die cut Glue Arts U Cut It Foam using Bird Sanctuary or similar die template. Run it through the die cut machine 2 times, and then once with a paper on top to make sure it cuts through.

2. Poke the excess pieces through and save for future projects (there are no scraps with U Cut It Foam - all pieces can be used).

3. Peel off one side of the bird cage and apply black glitter. Shake off excess. The larger the glitter, the more space you will have left, so next, apply a finer glitter on top of the black glitter. Use a scrap piece of paper to put over top and press firmly to ensure all the glitter is adhere to the adhesive.

4. Shake off excess glitter and then apply a coat of Glossy Accents. To have a little variation of color on the cage, apply fine glitter on top of the Glossy Accents on the TOP OF THE CAGE ONLY. Let dry.
