Simple Paper House tutorial for School project

Hi Friends,

My Son made a request to me to make a sky scrapper model for his school project. Hit with back pain and i couldn't sit for a long and do the project. Hence decided to make him a small little house.

Here's the tutorial for paper house

Material required for this:
1. Scale & pencil
2. Cardstock  or chart paper
3. Fevicol


  1. For the side of the house, you need to cut two pieces of cardstock(CS) measuring about 15cm by 13cm
  2. For base of the house - 10cm by 10cm - square shaped CS
  3. For the front & back part - 10cm by 15cm
  4. Now take the sides part and make a mountain fold at 2.5cm & at 13cm along the side of 15cm paper and on the other CS(13cm) at 2.5cm .
  5. Cut at the intersecting point of 2.5cm & 13cm and snip the corners to form a tray(L shape) like shape and fix the 10cm base to the both the bottom of the L and now you will get the below shape

6. Now for the Front & Back portion, mark a centre point and draw a line at 10cm the cut it to form a triangle shape.

7.Cut a door in the front panel and window on the sides(if required) and Attach front and back portion to the side pieces to form a house.
8. The roof is made from a piece of card stock measuring 15cm by 20cm. Make a mountain fold at 10cm along 20cm side and at 2.5cm and 5cm along the 15cm side. Snip at the 10cm line to the intersecting line to create the angle to make the roof. 
9. Fix the corner with adhesive and now the roof  sets perfectly on the house

Now you can decorate the house as you like.

Here is the little paper house which i made for my son. I have decorated it with handmade rose(from Pooja), 3d glitters, punched flowers, leaf diecuts. Since Christmas is nearing have created a snow effect using thermocol ball and attached a bell to remind about Santa.
