Home decor wall hanging made using the Sophie cricut cartridge

Hello, everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week! Can you believe it is September? I just love the fall and cannot wait to start getting some of that cooler fall weather! We do not get all of the colors that fall has to offer here in the Dallas area, but it is still my favorite time of the year!

Today I have a home decor item that I made using the Sophie cartridge. I bought this at Hobby Lobby and modged podged it. Next, I added some cricut cuts to it. Then, I added some ribbon. You know I just cannot help myself when it comes to ribbon!


I cut the bird cage out at 5".
I used DCWV paper.
 Thank so much for stopping by today! I have another project posted on my personal blog today. Come on over and check it out!
