Add an elegant touch to your garden. From the Susan's Garden collection, the Rounded 3-D Birdhouse die used here is just one of the amazing creations that grow great with your imagination.
Add cardstock and metallic-colored cardstock to mat board. Die-cut the Birdhouse out of mat board and distress with ink. You will need two house bases and three roof pieces to complete the project. Fold two Birdhouse bases along crease lines. Match the shapes and tape together on the inside to form the round shape. Apply glue dots or 1/8" tape on all tabs of the rounded support base. Bend tabs up and secure to the bottom of the Birdhouse.
Fold three roof sections along crease lines. Match the shapes and tape together on the inside to form the roof. Apply a small bead of glue around the top of the Birdhouse and set roof section in place. Allow to dry according to the glue’s directions. Fold the finial piece along crease lines. Use a small amount of glue or a glue dot to the tab to close it. Apply a small bead of glue to the inside point of the finial and place on top of the roof. If desired, cut a small length of paper-covered wire and add to the Birdhouse above the opening for a perch. Add color around the opening of the house with markers.
Die-cut the Dogwood Flower and Leaves out of appropriately colored heavyweight, smooth cardstock (80 lbs or more). Add color, manipulate and assemble pieces as shown in the die's instructional PDF or video.
Adhere the Dogwood Flower and Leaves to the roof of the Birdhouse along with moss.
