I made a dolls’ house

I decided to make a dolls’ house out of cardboard boxes.

Step one

Find two cardboard boxes and decide the shape of the house. Cut as required. Start with two boxes

Step two

Stick together using as much double-sided tape, sticky tape and glue as possible. Realise that it will still come apart.

Step three

Spend half a day papering the box, inside and out. Wish you had painted it instead.

Step four

Check the house for size.

Step five

Add another floor. Use as much tape as possible to attach. Realise that the walls will still fall down. Paper the extra floor.

Add a second floor

Step six

Add decorative elements, such as windows.
