First, the wood to make paper is planted for , nobody is destroying the forest to make paper.
When you use wood, a tree die. Many times, you have a wood piece that was knock down illegally...
Paper materials can be recycle!
My kids played in cardboards doll houses, I make a ballet scenery with cardboard (it is more light). It is easy to cut. I love cardboard material!
You can make this in others sizes, even a normal scale (use united cardboards with a thickness about 2 cm -1 inch)
Step 1: What you need:
Old cardboard box
A hand saw
Hot glue or PVA glue (spend more time)
Clips that you use to dry clothes (sorry, I don't know the name in English)
Fabric enough to cover 3 pieces (a strip of 30 cm)
Plastic sponge or cotton wool
Step 2: Cut the pieces
Cut 1 piece : 32 cm X 20 cm
Cut 2 pieces : 9,5 cm X 20 cm
(the bigger measures in the "vein" direction)
With a pen and the ruler:
Piece 1: Make lines with pen in the bigger side: 5 cm + 8 cm + 7 cm + 12 cm.
Piece 2: Make a line in the middle of the bigger side (10 cm + 10 cm)
Force the pen in the lines to easy to fold.
Step 3: Fold
The line central in a opposite manner to parallels lines .
The central line form the back of seat. The part that measure 5 cm is a front base and, the 7 cm and the 12 cm together form the back part of the sofa.
Fold the piece 2 (2 pieces) in the middle
