Scrapbooks Too in Bloomington, MN (my favorite LSS!) had this fun little contest going on for Spellbinders last week. When the contest first popped up I thought immediately of this fun little birdhouse and how cute it would be to make little "shingles" for the rooftop using their Labels Four dies and attached using my trusty favorite Helmar 450 adhesive!
I used my trusty Helmar 450 to glue the whole house together. I can not say enough great things about this adhesive, it dries so fast and holds like none other. This house is surprisingly sturdy!
The template for this little birdhouse was created by Nichole Heady for Papertrey Ink and was posted over at Life Preserver's a while back for a challenge. You can use the instructions for the roof and base if you have those Spellbinder dies. I did not have them, so this is what works in place:
- Cut the base of your house at 1.75 x 1.75 square.
- I used brown cardstock and then corner rounded mine using my corner chomper.
- Cut the roof for your house at 3.25 x 2. I then attached my shingles to cover the roof.
Thanks for stopping by and have a super scrappity Saturday!!!
