Here's a little birdhouse that I created. Thought I would share the tutorial on how I created it. Hope you enjoy!
What you will need:
(1) 11-½"x6" piece of CS
(4) pieces of 2-½"x2-¾" DSP (Designer Paper)
(1) 6"x3-½" piece of CS (for roof)
(10) pieces of 3-⅝"x1-¼" CS (roof tiles)
(1) 3-⅝"x2-½" CS (roof top tile)
(1) 3-½"x3-½" CS (base)
Sticky Strip or Score Tape
Punch (for door)
Ribbon approx. 10"
Okey dokey...take your 11-½"x6" piece of CS and score it at: 2-¾", 5-½", 8-¼ & 11" along the 11-½ side:
Now turn and score on the 6" side at: ½" & 3-½"
Turn back to 11" side, using a pencil, mark at: 1-⅜" & 6-⅞"
Take a ruler and score from the pencil mark to the score line below at an angle and then repeat to the other side (this creates a triangle).
Cut off tabs without trianlges. Your CS should look like the following now:
Using your punch, punch out a little door on the first panel:
Fold on score lines and place Sticky Strip on sides indicated:
Take your (4) pieces of DSP and punch one of them out with punch. Apply to all four sides of birdhouse:
Remove Sticky Strip on side only (leave the bottom on) and put together:
Take your 6"x3-½" piece of CS, (10) pieces of 3-⅝"x1-¼" CS and (1) 3-⅝"x2-½" CS. Punch out the roof tiles on one side only. Punch out both sides of the top piece (3-⅝"x2-½"):
Adhere one tile at a time to one side of the 6"x3-½" piece of CS to create roof:
Repeat on opposite and top off with (1) 3-⅝"x2-½" CS:
Fold in half and Crop-a-Dile a hole through it:
Pull ribbon through and tie in knot:
Place Sticky Strip on places indicated on Birdhouse base:
Adhere the roof to the birdhouse base:
Now attach your birdhouse to the 3-1/2"x 3-1/2" cs base.
There you go, a little birdhouse to keep or give to someone. Hope this tutorial was helpful and would love to hear comments/suggestions on it! Aloha!
