Just when I thought these Tonic die sets couldn't get any cuter...along comes this one!

First of all let's have a look at the dies in the set!

You get so many dies in these sets that I usually suggest in my videos, that you take a quick photo with your phone or whatever, before you start so that you will be able to fit them all back on the sheet again!

In this blog post I will be making the little house in the centre of the top photo.

To make it you will need the following - (all from Tonic Studios)

How to make it

Step 1

Die cut 2 of the main house shape panels from white card and burnish the score lines as shown.

Step 2

Die cut 2 of the plain arch shapes from green card.

Step 3

Using both dies shown, cut out one decorative arch from white card.

Step 4

Glue the green panels to the front and back of the little house.

Step 5

Using the 2 dies shown die cut the decorative side panels from green card and glue to the sides of the house.

Step 6

Die cut 2 green doors and a little set of extras show. Glue the doors in place and glue the knocker to the front door.

Step 7

Cut 2 squares of Silver Silk card measuring 6cm x 6cm and attach these to the roof panels with double sided tape.

Step 8

Snip off the two tabs at the top of the roof on the front panel. Die cut 2 grey "tile" pieces and glue one across the top of the roof on the back panel. Only add glue to the outer edges of the one for the front panel before gluing in place.

Step 9

Die cut another 4 grey tile panels and fold back along the top edge where the debossed line ends.

Step 10

Glue these pieces to the roof panels as shown and snip off the top corners. Add hi tack tape to the tabs around the front and back of the house.

Step 11

Glue the bases of the house panels together.

Step 12

Connect the other tabs with the hi tack tape.

Step 13

Cut a 9cm square of grey board, a 9cm square of green card and a 9cm x 2.5cm strip of grey card.
