Suggested Material List . . .
- Pre-cut kit has been cut from 100 lb white cover cardstock and 80 lb white cover cardstock.
- Materials for Digital Version: Any heavy weight cardstock in the color of your choice. I used a slightly thinner cardstock for the roof as it curved easier.
- Translucent Vellum.
- Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue. I put it in a bottle with a thin metal tip. If you are new to making kits, you may want to use Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue as this allows more time for you to reposition your pieces if you make a mistake.
- Multi-surface satin finish acrylic paints in the color of your choice (optional, it you use white cardstock.)
Let’s get started…
Fold and Assemble the Walls
1. Fold the walls. Glue the door and the small lower trim that goes below it over one of the openings. Add the vellum. Cover some of windows will all of the vellum to indicate closed windows, while others use a shorter piece for the open windows.
2. Glue the body together before gluing on each of the square lower trim pieces.
3. Add the bottom insert piece.
4. Add a thin line of glue along the top of the square lower trim, then add the shelf.
5. Add the upper trim pieces.
6. Glue on the long strips of trim at the bottom and top of the building. Trim off any excess.
7. Use a pen to curve each of the roof pieces. Curve the top away from you, and the bottom towards you, so the roof forms an “S”.
8. Glue each of the roof pieces together. It is best to let the glue set for each section before adding the next.
9. Glue on the roof and sign. If desired, add a decorative bead on top of the roof.
