Step 1: Gather Materials
You Will Need:
- Corrugated Cardboard (The thicker type)
- Un-Corrugated Cardboard (Like the types they use for cereal boxes)
- A Bowl
- A Stirring Utensil of Sorts
- a Sponge Paintbrush (Optional
Step 2: Mix the "Mortar"
Step 3: Cut the "Bricks"
From the corrugated cardboard, start to cut the bricks. Once again, no measurements here! It's really up to you. I, personally, made each brick about 1 inch by 1/2 inch. You cut these out with the scissors. How many you need depends on the size of the house you're making, but if you need more you can always go back and cut more out!
Step 4: Create a Foundation
From the Un-corrugated cardboard, cut out a piece in the shape and size you want the house to be. If you don't want a floor, don't worry! You can cut out the extra next step.
Step 5: Lay Down the First Layer
Using your finger, or a sponge paintbrush, apply some of the paste mixture to the bottom of the bricks then place them around the edge of the foundation. Make sure to leave a hole for the door!
Step 6: Remove Floor, If Desired.
Step 7: Continue Adding Layers
Step 8: Make the Threshold
Once you've made enough layers to get the door to its desired height, take some more corrugated cardboard and cut a large enough piece to go over the doorway. Add more bricks around it as normal. Then, add more normal layers on top of that.
