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.
Cut out the roof using a scissors:
We now have a full 10cm square on the one corner, let's fold that in half.
Once you have folded the square in half, glue it down.
Join the triangular pieces and glue them to each other.
This is what your roof should look like:
Now you need to cut out the house design template using a scissors. This is what the house should look like when you have cut it out.
You are now going to glue your box house together. Use double sided tape to stick down each glue flap.
This is what it should look like once it's all glued down.
I suggest you add your scalloped edge, or ribbon etc. before you sticking the roof to the house.
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.
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.
