This download includes all the digital files necessary to build the house. Each room consists of two interlocking pop-up cards, so there are a total of 16 pop-up cards to make. An entire, freestanding house requires a sturdy structure in addition to the individual pop-up rooms. This PDF download includes instructions and a full sized pattern for making a simple knock-down structure out of foam core which fits together (and comes apart) like a 3D puzzle without any additional hardware. There are a limited number of printed, die-cut corrugated cardboard house structures available for immediate shipping, if you would like to avoid the time and expense involved in making your own.
The pop-up room PDF file is formatted for letter sized paper, but it can be printed on A4 paper without cropping the image. The full-sized house structure pattern is formatted for tabloid sized paper (11″x17″) or on regular letter or A4 formats in case you do not have access to a large format color printer.
Download includes illustrated instructions. Each card must be printed, cut, scored, folded and glued. It is a very rewarding craft project, but if you would like a quicker and easier project, this house is also available as a boxed kit, with all the templates (including a house structure) printed, cut, and scored for you.
Completed house is a little under one cubic foot (each room is 5 cubic inches), and the scale is 30:1
For ages 7 and up (for playing) & 12 and up (for making).
You can also view a video tutorial to make the kitchen, and to see the completed house being assembled and taken apart for storage.
