Birdhouse Tutorial

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!

OCS Cards and a Wonderful Brak!

My gf, Linda, gave me this adorable card for March OCS. Love it Linda!

My gf, Mama, made me this wonderful shadow card!

Jackielou sent me this wonderful brak! Thanks Jackielou for thinking of me (she knows how much I love HK, lol)! Welcome back too!

Here is the OCS card that I made for Mama. Sorry the pic is a bit washed out...need to figure out how to take better pics.

I had these little shells that I wanted to put inside the shaker box. Had to make the sides really tall to accomodate them. I drew in the seaweed and sponged the blue for the background. Hope she liked it!
