What are DIY recycled toilet paper dolls without a DIY recycled cardboard dollhouse?
With humble beginnings, my recycled house soon took form. I cut and taped pieces of cardboard together. The windows were poked with a knife and then finished off with scissors. Everything else is cut with scissors and attached with masking tape.
I had extra felt from our DIY no-sew felt playhouse, I cut and hot glued it onto the cardboard shell.
With construction advice from my little one, the top balcony, doors and slide were all made to her specification. The balcony on top is made from a small scrap of cardboard and stuck on with tape.
It is so great having this part that swings open! I completely separated the side part from the box body and then reattached it with a simple hinge of many layers of tape.
Even if you do not have felt (or the time) a cardboard house can still look very pretty! If this is the case, I would use clear tape and make little embellishments around the doors, windows, and roof with markers or pen.
