Treat Birdhouse

Happy Wednesday from Roxie!  My daughter found the pattern for this little birdhouse on Pinterest and asked if I could make a couple for her daughter's pre-school teachers for Valentine's Day, I did and just because they're so cute I wanted one for myself for any occasion!
It's very easy to create but the pattern didn't have the roof pieces large enough for the house so after assembling the body I measured and made mine 1/2" wider and longer than the house top which actually ended up being a square cut.
The original post/pattern has been replaced with a purse pattern so I linked my Pinterest page here.  This house was enlarged about 3/4" inch.

Here is the open view.
