Adding a Second Roof:  I made my Bee Houses to go outside, into my garden, as nesting houses for our wild bees and bugs that are beneficial to my flower beds.  These gourds will give those insects a safe shelter over the winter months.  I want the Bee Houses to last for several years, but also want everything possible that I use to create them to be biodegradable.

To add a little extra strength to my outside houses I add a second paper roof, gluing it directly over the first.  These two layers of scrapbook paper will add a few months to a year to the life of the Bee House.  So that you can see the second roof paper I cut this roof slightly smaller than the first.  If you want outdoor Bee Houses cut this second roof the same size as the first.
