Designer's Tip: Use Dylusions ink sprays to color the cover of the birdcage album, then add patterned paper beneath it for a beautiful look! I sprayed "after midnight" and "cherry pie" over the chipboard, then added white to achieve the purple color.



  1. Place the decoratively cut chipboard birdcage cover on your protected work surface. Spray "after midnight" ink spray randomly over the piece, then spray "cherry pie" ink randomly over it and repeat. Shake "white linen" well and spray randomly over the inked surface, then spray a little more of the first two colors over the white. Repeat with all three colors until you are satisfied with the result. Let dry.
  2. While the inked chipboard is drying, cover a solid chipboard page with green/purple/pink/yellow floral paper, trimming edges evenly with the edges of the birdcage (you do not need to cover the leafy areas that extend from the edges). Align the inked cover with the solid birdcage shape and glue in place over the paper.
  3. Place Gold Jewel Border Dazzle stickers and flower border sticker across the birdcage as shown, trimming edges evenly with the outside edges. Back the nest/eggs, hearts, flower and leaves stickers with contrasting papers trimming edges evenly. Place or foam tape to the cover as shown. Write or computer print "favorite photos" on the tag and foam tape angled to the upper left portion of the birdcage. Add swirl stickers and dot ("innie") to the bird and tag as shown. Add a border sticker to the tag. Place Pave embellishment as desired. Use a 12" length of 3/4" wide purple silk ribbon to tie a bow. Zot near the bottom of the cover. Finish pages as desired. Align pages together and secure at the top with the ring. Tie assorted ribbons to the ring as shown.
