They were inseparable. When Christina was in the car, she would brush Mimi’s hair or feed her a bottle. At dinner, out shopping, at birthday parties or tucked in for bed, wherever Christina went, Mimi followed. One afternoon when Christina woke up from her nap, she saw something strange in the corner of her bedroom.

“What’s that, Mimi?”

She went closer and saw that it was a giant dollhouse, almost as tall as she was — with an upstairs and a downstairs! A new home for Mimi!

Christina never grew tired of the dollhouse her mother and father had made for her that year when she was five. Mimi lives in that house to this day, along with her daughter’s favorite doll, Guinevere.

Cardboard Houses for KidsMake a DIY Cardboard Dollhouse Your Child Will Never Forget

To children, a dollhouse is more than a toy; it is a wonderful part of their imagination brought to life. A cardboard doll’s house made from Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Boards is a gift your child can treasure for a lifetime because it will be unique and built to last.

The Cardboard Dollhouse DIY Kit

Our assembly kit includes all the materials you need to design and build your dollhouse:

  • 24 boards, 48” long
  • 48 gussets for making 45-degree and 90-degree angles
  • 192 fasteners
  • 3 24” x 48” triple wall corrugated sheets
  • White glue

Why Choose Alta® Boards for Your DIY Dollhouse

  • Ultra Strong Materials. With lumber-like strength (at one-third the weight!), Cardboard Lumber™ brand Alta® Boards are used for demanding industrial applications such as palletizing and crating large and heavy items. Your DIY dollhouse will last for generations.
  • Totally One-of-a-Kind. Alta® Board materials are simple enough for DIY-ers of any skill level, but flexible enough to accommodate complex designs. When you buy a dollhouse retail, you may or may not get quality for your money, but you definitely will not get originality. Don’t your children deserve something special?
  • Easy to Decorate. The clean, smooth surface of Alta® Boards can be painted and finished with other decorative materials. As your children grow, they can add their own personal stamp to their dollhouse, which in a way gives it a life of its own.
  • Eco-friendly. Our materials are paper-based and 100 percent recyclable. Your new dollhouse will set a positive example for sustainability — in addition to being stronger and more original than store-bought, non eco-friendly plastic dollhouses.
  • Pride of Ownership. If you are a DIY-er, you already know how satisfying it is to build something with your own hands. At Cardboard Lumber, we are DIY enthusiasts, too, which is why we are so excited to offer our DIY dollhouse assembly kits!
