House Treat Holder

I used this in some workshops and the ladies just loved them! They are one of those small projects with tons of uses!

These little houses are wonderful treat holders~ just lift the roof, decorate as bird houses and enclose seeds, give to someone who's moving, a real estate agent ...and other ideas below!

First cut your template, then random stamp (or if you have double sided cardstock print it right on the cardstock!), then score it.

Adhere your sides and bottoms be sure you leave your top flaps folded outside to support the roof.

Add chipboard or whatever papers, ribbons, embellishements you like.
You can take a small character stamp, to make several images to use for a mini playhouse if you like

Kids can color as they like and simply cut a slit in the image piece and insert it into a small folded piece to use with their house!

If you want you can attach the roof and add a ribbon or string to hang as a birdhouse or ornament.
