I had an idea to turn my Hey Cupcake template into a chicken coop. I found some wire mesh in the basement and had hubby cut it into squares for me and I adhered them on the inside with score tape. I cut my template and the windows with my Cricut but you could use a nestie or a craft knife to make some windows. I did scale down the template to 75-80% of the original size--I cut the template awhile ago and can't remember.
I scored some lines on the template with my scor-pal and distressed with vintage cream ink (PTI). The tin roof uses thin metal sheets made by QuiKutz and I embossed with a cuttlebug folder.
After I got the box put together, hubby tells me that chicken coops are colorful, because they are usually built/painted/repaired with whatever is hanging around, and my coop was...blah. So I painted it with various colors of ink. I put some gumball eggs inside that my youngest daughter is dying to get her hands on.
