Birdcage Assemblage Update

Continuing with my aluminum tape, I covered the outside of a matchbox, to give a metallic look. The inside of the matchbox had been decorated for quite sometime, but was just too small, or too awkward to be integrated into another project. Until now! Now it proudly perches on the front of the birdcage, right next to the front door, almost like a little mailbox. Inside, there are sequins adhered, with magnet strips that read 'share the gift'. I will be adding a little handle to pull the box open, and invite the viewer to participate in the 'play'
