Butterfly Cage Featuring Maja Design

For the first two weeks of June, Petaloo is doing a product spotlight featuring the amazing papers from Maja Design, a paper company out of Sweden with such soft and elegant papers.


My project is an altered Butterfly cage made with the softness of the vintage spring collection.


I detail cut almost the whole page of butterflies from the paper, not knowing how many would be enough, after I matched them front and back I added them to wire to make them look like they were flying within the cage.


I even had some escape from the cage, but as most butterflies are attracted to flowers I used the Penny Lane blossoms to keep them where they should be.


Adding the effect of moss and grass I added some mushrooms and more blossoms to the floor of the cage, making it a cozy little home.

Using a layer of paper on the background I added some subtle texture with a stencil.


Don’t forget there is a giveaway! Who cant resists these goodies
