Materials List

  • Two A4 sized caramel colored cardstock sheets
  • A6 sized orange cardstock
  • 30-35 10mm multi-faceted clear round rhinestones
  • Suitable brown and gold artificial silk flower
  • Quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • Standard scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Plastic lid with a diameter of 3.7”


  1. Use the plastic lid and pencil and trace a circle on to the one A4 cardstock sheet. Cut out the traced circle.

  2. Cut two strips, each 1.5” wide, from the cardstock.

  3. Make the base of the cage:

    Apply glue to the bottom edge of one strip and wrap it around the edge of the circle. Use the second strip to close the remaining gap, glue the strips together where they overlap and cut off any remaining part of the second strip.

  4. Glue a row of rhinestones around the base.

  5. Cut 8 strips from the brown cardstock, each sized 0.5” x 6.4”.

  6. Glue the bottom of each of the 8 strips to the inside of the base of the cage.

  7. Put the artificial flower in the bottom of the base.

    Tip: If necessary, use pliers to cut the stem of the flower shorter.

  8. Glue the top of the 8 strips together to close the cage.

  9. Fold the orange cardstock in half. Draw half a butterfly, making sure the body of the butterfly is on the fold. Cut out the butterfly, cutting through both halves of the cardstock. Open the butterfly and glue it on to the top of the cage.
