Inspired By - Caged Bird

Welcome to MFT Teaser Day Four. I'm enjoying all the DT's Teasers, aren't you? For more great cards featuring Teasers of these stamps, please go HERE, to MFT blog at 11 AM EST, and visit each DT members blogs. On OCT 6th there will be a MFT Release Party on SCS in their member forum, from 8 - 10 PM EST. Then, at 10 PM EST, MFT will be having a Blog Hop & Shop, when the stamps will be available for purchase. I hope to see you there :)

When I saw the Inspired By - Caged Bird stamps, I knew I wanted to make an untraditional holiday/birthday gift set, just for fun. I went with my take, on a holiday Grunge look, inspired by Tim Holtz. I made a container for the Gold Fish Crackers, and made a Soup sleeve and a Teabag holder, to complete the set.
Here is a close up of the Teabag holder book:
It opens up like a book and has two teabag slots inside. The Bird and the Diamond shape background is from the Inspired By set. The Bird was colored in with my Tombows, cut out and popped up.
Here is a close up of the Goldfish box and the soup sleeve (pardon the picture size).


I made a tag with the Polka Dot Greetings set (featured on Teasers Day One), stamped on vellum. The cut out Birds and Birdcage are from the Inspired By - Caged Bird set.  The small tag with the diamond and "Faith" on it is also stamped from the Inspired By set. The MFT Open Scallop Die at the top of the box was used to slip some scalloped edge papers in the "open/negative" slots that the die left behind, on my paper.


Please don't forget to join in all the fun on the MFT GDT Challenge, HERE. You could win over $100 worth of stamps and be the MFT Guest DT member for the month of November!

Thank you for stopping by, please come back tomorrow for more great ideas and Teasers!
