I opened the svg file in my Silhouette Designer Software and removed the circle so as not to cut a circle in the house. I cut the template on cardstock using my Cameo.
I cut a small window in the top part of the front panel for the bird and then decorated the house with rub-ons.
I cut the roof template out of cardstock using the Cameo.
To add some trees and characters, I had to adhere the house to a square block. For this, I cut the lid part of a 3d box that is available at the Silhouette Online Store. I then adhered the house to the lid using paper glue.
I printed some forest characters using my colour printer and cut it out and adhered it to the lid. I used the Cameo to cut out two 3d-christmas trees and glued it to the lid as well. I made the yellow bird using air dry clay. I printed the clock face clip art on my printer and the dials were adhered using a brad.
What is a cuckoo clock without pine cones? I used the Cameo to cut out two 3d ornaments and fastened a piece of twine to the top part of the ornament.
To hang the pine cones from the clock, I attached the twine to the lid by pulling it through the bottom using a needle and making knot so as to prevent it from slipping through the hole.
The final step was to attach the roof to the house. I decorated the roof using a rubber stamp and some black ink.
This was the end result:
