Gorgeous Birdhouses decorated using different window shapes (Circle, heart, star or flower)

Step 2 – Take one front and one side and place onto the base, pushy carefully, but firmly to adhere the two pieces together. You do not need to make a base if you choose not too. If you choose not to, there is no need to put icing on the bottom of each cookie.

Step 3 – Take the 2nd side wall and glue this in place on the base. Press firmly in line with the other cookie piece.

Step 4 – Take the 2nd front wall and glue this in place. Press firmly in line with the other cookie pieces. You still https://thesquarepdx.org/celebrex/ have time to reposition if you need to before it dries.
