More beautiful birds, just for you! Today’s design features an iconic summertime bird that I’m sure you will love. See my latest, intricately designed cut file, and make your very own stained glass flamingo project.
This flamingo is my third exploration of this “stained glass” technique. I’ve also shared a blue heron and a swan design as well. I’ve been on a kick with birds lately, and I just want to keep making more and more of these lovely little pieces.
These vellum projects look fantastic with some light behind them! You can hang them in a window, or put them in a recessed frame with some backlighting, and they look stunning.
This flamingo is the result of a reader request, and I just think it is perfect for summer!
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 flamingo! What other birds do you think would make a nice addition to this series?
