How to make a miniature wardrobe

Hi…….how are you today? 

A while ago I made some miniature paper dresses and needed a way to display them. This is what I came up with; a mini wardrobe

I think there are templates online but I like to do my own thing and here are the results

It was only after I had completed two wardrobes that I thought I should do a tutorial, so I have done just that. 

I used a sheet of A4 paper to show how to make a template. 

When making the actual wardrobe I would recommend using 220gsm card – anything heavier would not give a sharp enough crease where the doors fold back

TO MAKE

Fold the paper twice

Draw the top and bottom shapes


Cut through the 4 layers



 Undo fold 2 (you now have 2 layers with the first fold at the left hand side)

Mark the doors using a piece of card as a template

Cut along the solid lines then fold the dotted lines towards you

Alternatively you can make smaller doors with a drawer at the bottom

Add brads for handles, attach a cord for hanging a dress and decorate beautifully. I used scrapbook paper for the inside back
 


Happy Papercrafting
