Welcome to the Team Princess bi-weekly blog hop for Scrapping With Lisa’s Designs.  This week Team Princess is working on the Blue Bird from the Birds Pattern set.  However, there are a few challenges that go along with the blue bird.  We were not allowed to create the bird in blue, nor were we allowed to create a card or a layout.  We hope this shows the real versatility in Lisa’s patterns.

One really nice thing about Paper Piecing with Lisa’s patterns is you can cut them out with a machine, or you can cut them out by hand.  She also provides a digital image of each as well.  

Our blog hop starts here, , so please start from the beginning and spread your wings to fly from one blog to the next and check out the wonderful designs by team princess.  

You will find the Bird patter here, (

         Here's my project for our Dt Hop.

I love the actual project, but I was not super happy with my cage. I will eventually re~do the cage (heeheee)  I think the bars should have been smaller so you can see this adorable bird.
       I love this file, it's my favorite so far. Just because I can do so much with this lil guy.
       I hand cut this cutie, I adjusted the sizing of my bird by changing the settings on my printer.

To make the cage cut 4 -12 inch strips, I would cut them about a 1/4 inch wide or else your bars will be bulky like mine. The strips are held together with a brad. them hot glued to the sides of a small plastic tray.

I glued a ribbon to the back of my bird and then ran the ribbon up through the brad. so he would hang in the cage. Glue a stip of coordinating paper around the outer edge of the cage to cover the glued strips .
I hope you like this little project. I know you will love  this file. I thought of a ton of things to do with him. I know you will also. please don't forget to post your pics on the Scrapping with Lisa Designs FaceBook Page .
I can't wait to see what you do with this birdie ! Have a Blessed Day.
