Here is a cute dollhouse made out of recycled boxes and cardboard. It is ideal for barbies or other small dolls.
-Two boxes of equal size. (The height when turned sideways needs to accommodate the height of the doll)
-utility knife and or X-acto knife
-chip brush (cheap paint brush for spreading glue)
-water (to thin glue when needed)
-scrapbook papers, tissue paper, stickers, paint, etc. (for decorating)
Step 1: Put the boxes together
The first step is to put the two boxes together. Simply lay one of the boxes on the side of the other box and glue together. I used the blue tape to hold the boxes together while they dried.
The boxes I used had handle holes, so I added some cardboard to the sides and the inside. This covered the holes as well as added strength.
I also added a thick piece of cardboard between the two boxes and on the top for strength.
