  3. Cut down the sides of flaps A against the sides of the roof panels.
  4. Using a pointed object, lightly score along the heavy lines of flaps A to E and fold these flaps along the score lines.
  5. Lightly score along the fold lines of the sides, base and roof panels of the house and fold along the score lines.
  6. Glue flap C to side C to form the rectangular shape of the house.
  7. Bend the roof panels towards each and glue flaps A and B inside the panels to form the peaked roof.
  8. Glue flaps D and E to the inside of the bottom of the house to form the base, and the house is complete!
