Butterfly Cage, #300

I wanted item 300 to be something worthwhile which is why it has taken 5 days to get it drawn, cut, built and posted. 300 individually cut butterflies escape from their cage. Obviously cutting the butterflies was just the start and getting them all folded and stuck down was time consuming, the vectors came from a vector website but I can't remember which one so let me know if you recognise them. The cage was drawn freehand in inkscape and although lacking in flair I'm surprised it worked at all without the 3D modelling stage I normally put these things through. An item worthy of 300.
