Chipboard Bird house tutorial

The chipboard is 1,9 mm thick .
You can glue 2 thinner together if you can`t find so thick chipboard 

 Drew a circle from a plate ( this is 7 inch ) an cut 3/4 strip chipoard
Hinge cut 1 1/4 score at 1/2 and cut on the 3/4 inn like the picture

Bend the chipboard arond the half circle and fasten with the hinge 
It can help to wetting  the chipboard to help it bend 

Cut 2 strips at 12 x 3/4 and glue on the sides

1 strip fastened with hinge inside
Also hinges around outside to make it study

One more hinge inside


Use a strip of paper to mask inside where railing goes

 Cut 12 x 1/4 strips chipboard and mark at 8

Glue them on where the marks are


Glue strip over at the 8 inch mark

 Bend them in on the top


Cut of a bit off a 1 1/5 inch circle


Fasten the strips

Also one on the top to make it study and cover

Drew around for the door on the back

Fasten with hinges from Graphic 45

For the album i cut out 5 pages.

Drew around the bird cage and made it a bit smaller
The back page is 10 1/4 x  6 and then i went down 1/4 inch on each side and bottom for the next 4 pages.

The hinges are cut at 1 1/2 and score at 1/2 - 3/4 and 1 inch and folded like a W
Cut up a strip ( 1/4 ) as long as the hing and glued the hinge in between

And then fastened it on the back side of the previous page

Have fun creating :-)
