Bird House Roofs

I’ve had several comments and emails wanting the directions for the roof on the Bird Houses from yesterday.  Here’s how I made it –

Scallop the 11″ side of a piece of Riding Hood Red using the Scallop Edge punch.  Cut the scallops off so it measures 3/8.” 

Cut a piece of Riding Hood Red 1 3/4 x 3 1/2.  Score at 1 3/8, 1 3/4 and 2 1/8.  (This is the base of the roof.)

Sponge the scalloped edge and the score lines on the roof base. Apply snail all the way down the back of the scalloped strip.

Adhere the scalloped edge to thebottom of the roof base and cut off the remaining. 

Keep going – all the way up to the first score line.  Now repeat the process on the other side of the roof (you’ll need to make another scalloped edge strip.)  Leave the scored area “unscalloped!” 

Attach one side of the roof to the milk carton – leave one side unglued so it will open.  The mini clothespin will keep it shut.

Hope this helps.  If you need more info let me know.  Hugs, Fran
