I didn't start out to make paper dollhouse furniture. I was just working on a paper craft project and needed a wee little chair.

So I made this:



Then I thought, if I make this project a free download, it's going to be hard to explain the fold pattern on that wee little chair.  Maybe I can make a bigger one -- just to explain how it's folded.

And I made this:



And then I thought, that's fairly stable for a paper chair... if I make it a little bit bigger, it's a pretty nice (and cheap!) 1:12 scale dollhouse chair...

And I made this:



I call it the Burton Collection. Wink

Then I thought, with the basic pattern done, it would be easy to make different collections of paper dollhouse furniture ...

Over the next bit, I'll be posting the folding instructions for the individual pieces of furniture and a blank pattern for each piece. The blank pattern pieces will be suitable for printing on colored paper or for printing on white paper and hand coloring.

Once all of the instructions are done, I'll upload the printouts for the Burton Collection...

I've finished the instuctrions and template for the first chair.

This is the chair that started it all. It's also the easiest to one to fold... or maybe I just think that because I've folded about a gazillion of them. There are two files to download: the template and the instructions.

While I originally intended to offer these in 1:12 scale, I did get curious as to how small this pattern could go and still look respectable.



So, 1:96.  The download file includes a template for each of the four sizes.

And yes, I did do a 1:144 chair, but... it looked a little goofy. Some minor modifications might correct the goofiness, but that's work for another day (so a 1:144 is not included in this file).

Download Paper Chair #1 Template
Click the image to the left to download the dollhouse chair template. The template is a PDF file and requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader (or any other PDF reader).

This one file contains the template for all four scales of the dollhouse chair pictured above: 1:12, 1:24, 1:48, and 1:96.

This file does not contain the folding/assembling instructions -- those are in the next file which you also need to download.



Download Paper Chair #1 Folding/Assembling Instructions

Click the image to download the chair folding and assembling instructions. The template is a PDF file and requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader (or any other PDF reader).

Thanks for sharing, Microjivvy! I downloaded both files but they are the same thing, the template, no instructions?

I must've been thinking about something else when I posted both here and on my blog -- I did the opposite on my blog post (two sets of instructions, no template).  Cheesy

I just fixed it... I think. Wink
