DIY Kit: Travel Dollhouse


I am so excited to offer these Travel Dollhouses as a DIY Kit! One of the most requested items are the suitcases themselves so now I'll be offering them through my shop. You can click here to see available Travel Dollhouses. To fill the suitcase, you can purchase DIY Kits and/or assembled furniture and decor from my shop. DIY Kits make a great gift for crafty kids.


Each kit includes:

-Suitcase

-Paper template for floor/wallpaper

-Personalized wooden luggage tag


You'll need:

-Paper to use for floors and wallpaper

-Furniture and Decor to fill your suitcase

To make the floor for your travel dollhouse, you'll need both paper templates and your flooring of choice. I recommend scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby or Michaels. Jessica Chloe Miniatures offers beautiful flooring downloads, and I sell digital downloads in my shop as well (click here to see your options). Place the template on the paper, trace it, and cut it out.

You can use double-sided tape or Mod Podge to attach your paper. The tape would be less permanent if you think you'd want to change it out. Use a foam brush to apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back rectangle of the floor. Don't apply paper to the crease where the suitcase folds up because it'll distort the paper and make it wrinkle.

Press the paper onto the floor and push out any wrinkles or air bubbles. Repeat this process for the front part of the floor and allow the glue to dry before applying the wallpaper.

Turn the suitcase so the back wall is on the table and repeat the same process you did for the floor. Allow the glue to dry completely before adding any furniture or decor to the travel dollhouse.
