Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs chipboard doghouse with 2 mini albums tutorial finish part

Hi everyone :-)
Finally finished the roof mini album and dog house stand tutorial :-)
There will be a 2 part tutorial for how to make this dog house and 11 parts on how to make the mini album that will be posted first. Also have a bonus project tutorial for a tiny accordion mini album that .will be posted after the dog house tutorial.
It is all made out of chipboard and the beautiful Raining Cats and dogs papers from Graphic 45


There is a lot of opportunities for making this Dog house and album. You can choose to make a regular cover for the album and store it inside, Glue down the roof with hinges, glue down the house on the stand with hinges, Just make the top part  with a platform and skip the drawers or just make a regular mini album. Will show the different opportunities in the tutorials.
You can also make this as a Christmas house :-)

Inside the roof is a 6 x 4 mini album hanging.

Will show in the tutorial on how to make this accordion windows.
The sign is a die from Joy Crafts but here you also can use the small banners cutouts.

inside entrance there is place for a photo of your pet.
The fussy cut outs are glued with repositionable tape so it can be taken out.

The accordion window is fastened with a hinge on the side and closes with magnets.
This window can also be made so it can be taken off.
