Follow instructions to learn how to make this origami house.
Build a house of paper with these easy origami house instructions. Most of the folds are pretty simple except the the roof overhang is a little tricky if this is your first time. But don’t worry because I’ve created easy instructions with pictures every step of the way.
Step 1: Begin with a square sheet of origami paper with color side down. If you only have regular 8.5×11 paper, follow these instructions to turn it into a square.
Step 2: Fold the paper in half from left edge to right edge, then unfold.
Step 3: Once again, fold in half from top to bottom edge and unfold again. We just need the creases.
Step 4: Fold the edges to the center as you see in the images.
Step 5: Turn the figure over.
Step 6: Fold the left and right edges to the center.
Step 7: Time for the tricky roof overhang. Open the top left and right flaps, spread out the corners to the side, and flatten down like you see in the picture.
Step 8: Turn the house over and draw the door and window. Now you know how to build a house of paper!
