Taproot at Home :: Tiny Paper Houses

We are all walking through these challenging days right now, but let's do it together, shall we? We want to offer for your home (and hearts) some of the goodness that has been inside the pages of Taproot Magazine while many of us are at home for an extended and indefinite period of time. We've gathered recipes, craft projects, and activities that we hope will keep you making, doing, and dreaming (and eating too!), all of which we'll be sharing here in this space each day.

Home Sweet Home: Cut & Fold Paper Houses

Designed by Caitlin Betsy Bell
Originally published in Issue 16::SHELTER

These tiny little paper houses make a fun craft project for everyone in the family! Take a little break, download, print, and color away. Once you construct them set them on the window sill or mantle, or add some string to turn them into little ornaments. Once you've made a few, try tracing the templates and creating your own patterns to make more. How about making enough to create a garland or even a little tiny city. Enjoy!

Instructions (also included on the download): 

1. Color and decorate to your heart’s content.

2. Cut along solid lines.

3. Fold along dashed lines.

4. Tape or glue tabs to build.

5. Add a bit of yarn or string to turn your tiny house into an ornament if you’d like!
