Instructions: Click here to see a larger photo of this project. Cut this SVG file of the house in any color you like! Put it together as the instructions will tell you, ink all the edges with the Vintage photo distress Ink to make it distressed. Then I used a piece of Packing material for the bottom, you can take a piece of flat Cardboard and wrap this in Green cardstock, cut a piece of the paper collection and glue this on top of the bottom, then place your house on top of it a little bit offset. Make a fence with the icicle sticks and Ink them with the Distress Ink. Cut a piece of a straw and Ink that too then glue it to the side of the house like a downspout, then you glue the fence to that so it will stand, on the right side behind the fence you can glue a dowel and on top of that place a wooden button, cut out a sentiment from the paper collection and glue this on the dowel.

Cut 3 bees from the paper collection and the Honey pot, put some 3D Crystal Lacquer on the wings and on the pot on the wings you can sprinkle some of the shard glass. Make a table with a wooden bead and a button on top and do the same for the seats but smaller, when the bees and the pot are dry put a piece of acetate on the back of them and glue them on the table and seats, place this in the garden. Put the other bee on a piece of acetate and glue him in front of the top window and decorate it with some green to hide the acetate. Use an old piece of a miniature Christmas light string (dollarstore) and cut 1 light off and glue that next to the door.

Stamp the Coneflower from the Blossoming coneflower set and the backyard Blossoms set and the Garden Edge Cone flower with Rich Cocoa on white cardstock, color them on top with Tangelo and then Sunflower yellow and a mix of Buttercup and blend this in each other, put some glue on the top and sprinkle the decorative sand on it for the pollen. Stamp the Tiny Long flowers from the Backyard Blossom set with the Rich Cocoa and color them with the Vibrant Fuchsia and the Leaf Green, cut them out with the coordinating dies. Place all the flowers in front of the fence and glue them to the fence, in front you can put some miniature train green, the pink flowers you can put them on the left side of the house, put some green in front of it and put the deer Button in front of it. Make a path with some decorative stones and you're done!
