A little while ago, I shared the results of my first experiment with this velum “stained glass” technique in the form of my stained glass blue heron project. I loved the results so much, that I knew that this was something I needed to explore more.

Swans are known for their elegance and picturesque nature. And, even though it’s probably cliché, I just think they are so beautiful!

A couple months ago, we went to a bird refuge during swan season to get a good look at them during their migration. Unfortunately, we didn’t have much luck, and came home without spotting any. But maybe next year. I am determined to see a swan in the wild!

To make this project, all you need is:

Note: if you’re planning on utilizing Cricut’s “print then cut” feature to do this project, make sure to ungroup all fo the layers first; then select everything, besides the “outline” layer, and hit flatten.

Once everything is printed and cut out, all you need to do is attach your vellum layer to your cardstock detail piece with a little hot glue—easy peasy!

I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome freebies available on my blog!

Enjoy making your own stained glass swan! What kinds of birds do you think would make a nice addition to this new series?
