What you need to make a paper house:

Before you begin, start by cutting out the roof & house as shown on our template. Go on, redraw them, it's not hard! On the roof template I have included my scalloped circle and scalloped edge.

Step 1

Cut out the roof using a scissors:

We now have a full 10cm square on the one corner, let's fold that in half.

You are now going to glue your box house together. Use double sided tape to stick down each glue flap.

Step 9

I suggest you add your scalloped edge, or ribbon etc. before you sticking the roof to the house.

Step 10

Now stick the roof to the house. See how I stuck mine down on the image below. I used a craft glue that dries clear, but another glue you can use and I love using is Pritt Power Gel.

The roof has an opening on top so you are going to have to add a strip to the roof to close the opening or maybe you have another fabulous idea on how to hide the opening.

Step 11

Once your paper house is complete, cut decorations from scrap bits of paper and stick these on to decorate it and create a beautiful gift for Mothers Day.
