Step 1: Base
this step is very simple, just make two cards lean towards eachother so it makes a triangle.
Step 2: Base and Alternative
you can go two ways with this one, you can add another triangle and top it with one card laying on top(1),or you can lean 2 more cards on the open sides of the triangle(2). the traditional card house is the first one. if you are doing the other, simply top it with a card laying horizontally(3)
Step 3: Finish It.
now just make one more triangle on top of the other two.this may be tricky because the cards constantly slip up and knock it over, then u gotta start all over again...and who wants that?
Step 4: My Card Houses
Here are some of my card houses, they take time and practice to make, so don't get frusturated if you can't do it.
Step 5: My Nearly Indestructable Card House
haha, i built this card house so well, when i went to destroy it by shooting it with elastics...it wouldn't fall down! so i had do do it by hand
