Like the 1:144 paper shops this 1:48 scale paper building is a good way to experiment with a new scale for a dolls house or other scene. You can use this building for a static display, turn it into a gift box, or glue the designs to wood and create something more permanent.
Assemble the Materials for a 1:48 (Quarter) Scale Shop
To make this 1:48 scale shop you will need:
- Computer Printer.
- Three pieces 8 ½ by 11 inch good quality printer paper , or photo paper or card stock.
- Sharp Scissors
- PVA (white) glue or a good quality glue stick
- Thin aircraft plywood (1/8 inch or thinner) or bristol board if you want to make sturdier buildings
- Colored pencils or chalks to adjust colors if needed
