Begin by cutting the house template pieces from cardstock, and window pieces from vellum. Be sure to keep the broken board pieces from the roof section.
Glue vellum over all window sections on the inside of the house. There should be one piece remaining, that will be used in the next step. Allow the glue to dry before moving on.
Fold open the door and glue vellum on the inside of the door opening. Do not glue to the bottom flap. Allow glue to dry before moving on to the next step.
Glue broken board pieces over the windows on the outside of the house.
Fold up tabs on the base. Glue together base side strips.
Glue border base pieces together, set aside to dry.
Glue base tabs and adhere to the base side strip. Press tabs from the inside to adhere.
Continue to wrap the side strip around the base and glue together to complete. Set aside to dry.
Fold perforated edges as shown. Glue side tab and adhere to the opposite side to form the house.
Glue the roof side tabs and adhere to form the roof top. Bend the fence tops as desired.
Fold in the bottom tabs and set the house upright.
Glue the border around the base.
Wrap and glue the ends of the border together and adhere to the base. Allow glue to dry.
Place a battery operated candle or LED light underneath the base. Glue the bottom tabs of the house and adhere to the base.
Remote controlled LED lights are much brighter and work great for this type of project. They can be found on Amazon.
Different colored lights and different view points create different effects!
