Cardboard House





Introduction: Cardboard House

This project was made by me and my brother a few months ago and when a teacher of mine showed me instructables I thought that it was the perfect thing to publish. This project is really easy, fun, and cheap and only took me a few hours. I encourage you to try to make this project yourself. Good luck.

Step 1: Gathering Materials

The materials are very cheap and can be customized to make your house look however you want.
The materials are:
A shoebox (with a removable top)
Colored paper
House like objects like small tables chairs etc. (you can make them or buy them)
Glue(hot glue or normal glue)

Step 2: Setting Up the Box

Take off the top of the shoebox and place it under the now open box which should be on horizontaly then glue them together.

Step 3: Putting on the Colored Paper

Glue on the paper to the inside of the box on every surface.

Step 4: Putting on the Carpet

Cut out the cloth in the shape of a carpet and glue it onto the "floor" of the box.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Now put the house like objects in the house get creative you can put in shelves, tables, chairs, and much more customize the house to make it in your own style.

Step 6: Now You Have Your House

Good job you did it!! Now you can continue customizing your house however you want have fun and I hope you enjoyed making the house.
