My little girl just turned two and I can hardly believe it. She’s just starting to enter the stage where she likes dolls and babies… although I think she actually just likes “prepping to play” with dolls and babies, not really playing with them. I made her this Scrapbook Paper Doll House and it was a hit! I’m excited to share how I did it with you.
I wanted my daughter’s little doll house to be sweet but a bit more on trend, so I found fun scrapbook papers to bring it all together! (I also made one for my son the following year!)

The first step is a bit tedious. All areas of the doll house that will be covered with scrapbook paper, need to be measured and replicated in regular ole’ white paper. This takes a long time, but it will save you ruining or bending your lovely scrapbook paper. See my example below of the front face of the house in regular paper. (And when I say a long time, this entire project took me just an evening, so it won’t take forevvvva long.)
Then, I applied one thin layer of Mod Podge on the doll house and then a thin layer on the backside of my scrapbook paper. This makes the paper adhere perfectly to the house.
Phew. That roofline was a challenging one, but look how great it turned out!
Clearly, I am no perfectionist as you can see some of my seams here and there.
I was so pleasantly surprised with how well this turned out.
