Duct Tape Card Board House and Hiding Place


This is my very first instructable. And what this is supposed to be is just a little project where you can hide some of your valuables and it completely made of scratch so it is very unlikely someone will look in it or just a house for play.

Step 1: Materials

1.Duct Tape of your choice (i used grey and blue)

2.Wrapping paper(The ones you put on top of gift bags)

3.A ruler

4.A marker

5.A knife

6.Card board(i used a nutri bullet box but you can use anything)

Step 2: Step 1

First u need to make a base for the house and cover it with duct tape.

Step 3: Step 2

You need to make a wall and a window if u want. Cut it out.

Step 4: Step 3

After that u need to surround the whole wall with duct tape and attach it to the base

Step 5: Step 4

Next cut out a back wall that fits across the back just like in the picture. Cover it with duct tape and attach it to the window wall and to the bottom.

Step 6: Step 5

Next we have to make the next wall on the other side. Remember it is a bit longer than the other wall. Duct tape it to the back wall and the base.

Step 7: Step 6

So we are going to start the front cut a piece out and make sure it fits on the window wall and the base perfectly.

Step 8: Step 7

Now we have to connect the part from our previous step with the wall and door. Duct tape all of it and connect it to the wall and the base.

Step 9: Step 8

Make the door just cover one piece of duct tape over and over again and then tape it to the frame we built.

Step 10: Step 9

Once u attach the door cut out a L shaped piece so that we can finish the rest of the wall.

Step 11: Step 10

Cut out another piece like that and put it on so now you have half your front done.

Step 12: Step 11

Cut out a piece that is shaped like another L.

Step 13: Step 12

To finish the front of. You need to cut out a piece that fits the base.

Step 14: Step 13

Trace your base again and cover it with duct tape. Place it right on top of the first level it should fit perfectly.

Step 15: Step 14

cut out a piece for the front wall on the top. cut 2 windows out and put the wrapping paper. cover it with duct tape and put it on top of the second level it should be a little diagonal.

Step 16: Step 15

Next trace the top of the house and put it on top of the house. Duct tape one side only. So that you can make it a top.

Step 17: Step 16

Last cover a piece of card board with duct tape so it can be the cover of the garage and once it is done only tape once side to the house so it is another storage compartment. Complete!!!
