THE SCHOOL

The school has undergone many changes since it first 
opened its doors. Because of some damage in the school, they opened up a new wing for the new classrooms, dorm rooms and even a new entrance.







  The main hall on the first floor. 







The new student lounge is a lot bigger. 
More events will be held in the school lounge.






The new lunch room is also bigger. Now instead of 
just eating food from the vending machine, the school
is now offering hot breakfast, lunch and dinner.

My niece was never into Barbie's, she, well 'we' always enjoyed playing with her 
Polly Pocket's, ok ok, our Polly Pockets. I bought most of them from garage sales and thrift stores. 
Then she started liking the Monster High dolls, got a few for Christmas last year, then she...asked me to build her a Monster High house...I was a little hesitant at first because who has the time, but I liked the challenge, plus she is my only niece and I just can't say no to her.

 

I have made houses before but they were Polly Pocket scale. This was much bigger...I was excited and scared. So I headed off to the Packaging company I get my cardboard from and picked out the size of my boxes. I didn't want to go too big, because that means more paper mache...more work...blah blah blah. So I decided on the 22 x 14 x 14". From there I drew out my plans. I knew this was actually going to happen, when I started glueing the boxes together, once my niece saw how it was going to look, she got more excited and now I really had to finish this thing. So for about eight weekends, mostly Sundays, I spent working on this house. Went to bed late and got up early. I was excited too, to see it finished.

I decided to change the house into a school house because to be honest, I didn't want to have to build a kitchen, I thought making desks was easier and less work, I loved making it but I really wanted to just get it done... I wish I took more pictures during the process...I wasn't really into YouTube.ing and did not know what the whole 'blog' thing was about...

Now I am loving all this, I love sharing what I do with cardboard and I am so thankful that you all enjoy it too. Thank you so much for all your comments, you inspire me. I want to make more...

Here is a few pictures of the inside. Check out the 'dorm' tab for the students rooms.

    If you want to make more make one for me please, I'll give you $10-$20 for it, I know it's worth more but we need to spend less so...

    1. Hi Paris, I wish I could make it for that price, but even if i did the shipping costs would be crazy, its a big house...you can make one yourself and personalize any way you want, its not that hard, no big tools, just cardboard, paper mache and paint...

    1. LOL...I love questions... The www.lolasminihomes.blogspot.com has all the tutorials, except for the couch and vending machine... the vending machine is a big piece of styrofoam I paper mached over it, but I made a cut out to mimic where the food comes out, then I found pictures of vending machines online and printed the food portion of it, covered it with plastic (window) and voila...
