Birdhouse Tutorial with Corri

Hi everyone!  Corri here today sharing a quick assembly tutorial for Lori’s hexagon birdhouse with stand.  There are several birdhouses included in the set and they would make great Spring decorations.

Here’s the one I made.

Here are some photos to help you with the assembly.

Here are the pieces as they look when they come out of your machine.

Fold along all score lines and then apply glue to the glue tabs and form the birdhouse and the pole for the base.

 

Next, insert the pole through the square hole in the bottom of the birdhouse.  Fold down the flaps and glue in place.

Glue the hexagon shaped piece on the inside of the birdhouse to cover glue flaps and reinforce the bottom.

To form the base, fold along all the score lines and then apply glue to the small tabs.  I have the most success when I do these one at time.  Line up the edges of the adjacent panel with the score line.

Insert the other end of the pole through the lid of the base, fold flaps and glue in place.   Now you can attach the top of the base to the bottom  Just like a box with a lid.

Finally, apply glue tab to the cone shaped roof and glue on the top of the house.  I added a small bird die cut and some layered flowers just to dress it up a little.

I hope these pictures help a little.  Sometimes it helps to see step by step pictures.

One Last Bunny… with Kathy

Happy Monday everyone!  I know Easter was yesterday, but I wanted to share one more project, that I made for my daughter… take a peek:

 I started with Lori’s Easter Basket File (in Silhouette Store).  This file is great because the body of the basket is all one piece and easy to assemble!  I added Lori’s new EOS Lip Balm Bunny (in Silhouette Store).

I can’t resist these adorable EOS Holders.  They are just perfect for little gifts or favors!! All that was left was some fun Easter Grass & of course, some Chocolate eggs!  That’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by!

 

April Link Up with Cathy

Welcome to the blog today! First off, I wanted to announce the winner of last month’s Link Up Party. Laurie Black, you just won the $15 gift voucher to my SVG shop. We have a fun new link up going on today, so I’ll turn the time over to CT member, Cathy, to get that started…

Hi everybody! It’s Cathy hosting this month’s Link Up Party!  We can’t wait to see what you create with Lori’s files from her SVG shop or from the Silhouette Design Store!  To be eligible to win you must use one of Lori’s files!  I am loving Lori’s new Echo Park Jack and Jill collections and I created all three of my shaped cards with the Jill collection.  So for this month’s link up all you have to do is create a project with the Jill collection or any of Lori’s shaped cards, and there are tons to choose from!

I had so much fun with these cards.  I hope you will try making a shaped card, they are so much fun to give and receive!

My first card is a Flower Shaped Card!  So fun with all of the great patterns and colors in the EP Jill collection!  I added gorgeous brad and a sticker from the collection too!

Next up, an adorable A2 bird card!  Love that I could add a chipboard sentiment tucked under is wing from the EP Jill Collection!

And last just a fun slider card, that little pinwheel actually slides right across.  That should make anyone’s day a little brighter.

 It’s  Lori’s Pinwheel Penny Slider Card!  Again, a gorgeous brad and some stickers from the EP Jill Collection!

Thanks for joining us today!  Please come play and link up your creations for your chance to win a gift certificate for $15.00 to Lori’s SVG Shop!
