I made this paper sculpture for my Mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I used the Dreaming Tree Hummingbird Paper Sculpture to make this, and it was so easy! I love the tutorials the owner, Leo Kowal, does-it makes it so easy to put together! The pearls ere from my stash, and the background paper is some old CTMH cardstock I inherited. The tag is from Cricut Access from Draw + Cut Everyday tags, and I used scraps of white and blue to make it. The frame is one I bought a long time ago, so I don't know where I bought it!
