2. Lay side of carton, peak side down onto green card stock & trace around with pencil, leaving 1” on sides for folding. Cut out. Fold sides in and run through paper crimper. Repeat  for other side of house. Glue both side onto carton with KIDS CHOICE GLUE. Let dry.
3. Repeat for other two sides & glue in place.
4. Cut assorted rectangles from black card stock for windows & doors, and smaller yellow triangles to fit in windows. Glue in place. Cut strips of black card stock and glue onto yellow areas as in photo. Glue each window onto house making each a little crooked.
5. Cut a rectangle of orange card stock for door and glue over black card stock with a tiny yellow square for the window. Cut a small handle and two small strips from the black card stock. Glue handle onto door and strips over window, and then glue door onto the house.
6. Measure a rectangle 1” longer and wider than the base of the carton onto black cardstock and cut out. Cut a piece of decorative paper 1” shorter than the black cardstock and glue to the black cardstock & let dry. Fold in half for the roof. Place on top and glue only one side to base, leaving other open to lift to insert goodies.
