Paper house - School Project Model

My husband and I were living in a rented one BHK flat. One day, we were talking about purchasing a house in future. During the discussion, I asked my husband about his dream house. He shared his thoughts-

It doesn’t matter how big our house is, but it should have a small garden around it. There should be a slight shade section on the lawn where we can have a cup of tea on a cosy table and chairs. I loved his thoughts.

So on his first birthday, after our marriage, I decided to gift him his dream house made through art and craft.

Join me on how to make a house model.
