    3. Transfer the template onto patterned scrapbook paper and cut out.
    4. Apply a coat of Americana Outdoor Decou-Page to one side of the birdhouse at a time where the paper will be placed. Position the paper and remove any wrinkles or bubbles. Apply a coat of Decou-Page on top of the paper. Repeat for all sides, allowing drying time between each.
    5. Using hot glue, adhere flower petals and buttons to the front of the birdhouse as desired.
