I found this bird cage picture display at World Market. It comes with clothes pins to create a unique and ever-changing, all-arrangements-possible way to display pictures, ticket stubs, notes, cards/postcards, and pretty much anything you can think of. It can hang on the wall or be set on a table or shelve. World Market has this in two sizes (big here and small here). I bought the smaller one due to limited wall space in my sister’s apt, but the big one would be AmAzInG in my bedroom so maybe for my birthday?!
I bought this for my sister’s apartment and since her birthday was yesterday, I made a Happy Birthday banner to hang on it.
For the “Happy Birthday” banner I just typed it up in a Word document, made them the color/size I wanted, looked for an image online that I could use as the background, and then printed it out. Then, I cut the letters to be the same size, pasted them onto colored cardstock/scrapbook paper, leaving a little extra at the top of the letter piece so I could fold over the twine. And as I just said, I used twine I found in the garage to keep with the rustic, simple theme of the bird cage frame. I folded the extra end of paper over the twine and secured it all with ribbon glue because I had it close by. It wouldn’t be my first choice of glue but it seemed to work!
