Surely almost everyone has magazines, notebooks, sketches or books that are no longer needed and no one uses them. That’s what we need right now. To make paper tubes, you will need a stick (needle, sushi stick, skewer).

Take half a sheet of A4, fold it in half and cut it in half.

You now have A5 size. Next, take a stick and wrap it with this paper. When you reach the edge of the paper, put glue on the edge and twist it to the end. Hold it for a few seconds and you can pull the stick out. You need 150 of these blanks.

Next, you need to make the blanks for the house itself. The first blank is the front, with a door, the sizes are shown in the photo below. The second blank is exactly the same, but without a door. You will need to cut out windows and doors on all the blanks. You will also need 2 blanks without windows and doors of the same size.
