Bless their little hearts, my dolls are such book lovers! I knew I needed to find a way to make them a bookshelf for their doll house. When my husband tossed this into the trash can…
my mind raced to the doll house. This is the perfect size — tall and narrow — for making a bookshelf. I retrieved it and put it on my craft desk.
I cut it down to the size I wanted, making the depth and height the perfect size for our dolls and their doll house books. Some of the left-over pieces of the box were used to make shelves which were hot-glued into place.
I then used Mod-Podge to put into place some heavy pieces of scrap book paper, making a sort of veneer on the doll house bookshelf. One large piece, perfectly cut, slid in perfectly behind the shelves, on top of a layer of Mod-Podge, so that made the inside back of the doll house bookshelf.To smooth the edges and give the doll house bookshelf more design I Mod-Podged little pieces of tissue paper around the edges.
I then started putting books in. Ooohh the little dolls had goosebumps when they heard about their new bookshelf!
See anything that appeals to you?
