Snack Time - Single Page

Snack Time

This is Schmeagle my parrot who only loves me when I'm eating - other than that he does not like me much. Hubby got him for me when my cat died and he was my baby for a while, but then decided he likes my hubby more - must be female!!! :)

S & S

He's also not very fond of the kids, but was quite happy to go for a ride with Shanice on her bicycle!! :)

Mini Paper House Step by Step

Welcome

Unfortunately I cannot give you the 12 X 12 template - I have had to make it smaller which means you are going to have to make your own template. I have done the step buy step using white paper and I suggest if you are not sure about this maybe you should make one out of white paper first and then you can make one using patterned paper.





You Will Need:



2 Pieces of 12 X 12 Patterned Paper



Scraps of paper



Double Sided Tape



Glue



Scissors



Pencil



Ruler



Embellishments of your choice












The Roof

Roof Temp

The House

House Temp
 
Step 1 - Cut out the roof - it should look like this

Step 1
Step 2 - You
now have a full 10cm square on the one corner – you will fold that in half

Step 2



Step 3 - Now stick it down using double sided tape

Step 3



Step 4 - Now you need to join the triangular pieces and glue
them to each other

Step 4


Step 5 – this is what your roof will look like

Step 5

Step 6 – this is what the house should look like when you
have cut it out.





Step 6




Step 7 – you are now going to glue your box together. Use
double sided tape to stick down each glue flap

Step 7 



Step 8 – this is what it should look like when they are all
glued down

Step 8

Step 9 - I suggest that you add your ribbon or edges to the roof before you stick it onto the house



Step 10 – Now stick the roof onto the house. See image on how
I stuck mine down. I used a craft glue that dries clear, but another glue you
can use and I love using is Pritt Power Gel

Glue roof onto house 

Step 10

When glue is dry this is what it will look like

Glue Roof


Note: The roof has an opening on top so you are going to
have to add a strip of paper to the roof to close the opening or maybe you have another
fabulous idea on how to hide the opening.




Now you can start embellishing your mini paper house!

Well I hope this makes sense - please let me know if you need any help? You can email me canica@spunky.co.za
