Introduction

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
