I made this using a tutorial from the TV show Blue Peter, but I can't seem to find the pattern online anymore.





I've yet to actually put it up. I'm afraid the rain will ruin it. Anyone know if there's a product I can seal it with that would be bird-friendly?

I adore it! Question about the juice box. Was it one that was one of those wax ones? You might want to look for some oil-based sealants. Although I'd avoid petroleum. Aim for something with linseed so it's food-safe.

It is the wax kind. Thanks for the info. I'll look into that!

No problem. I worked for the local Game and Fish and we were always getting calls about birdhouses. I'm not sure how well the wax board in that will stand up to the sealers, but you may want to try them on another juice jug before you put them on your pretty Tardis.

Yup, I can't find the pattern or printouts anymore either, but I did find a youtube video.

I was recently able to find the patterns on the Blue Peter website. I couldn't replicate the process again if I tried, but I do have the instructions and cutouts.

Since this is my first Craftster post, I've no idea how to do any of this, but here are the cutouts. I don't know how to link the instructions, as they're in .pdf form.
