How to Make Pultz Houses
Welcome Friends! I'm super excited today to share Making Pultz Houses with you.
Making the basic house structures is pretty easy in printing a template and cutting out. Then it's a matter of folding the house so it becomes real!
Step 1. Print the template on cardstock. These templates are
8 1/2" x 11". Determine if you'd like smaller houses to use as ornaments, or this size to use creating vignettes with multiple houses.
Templates printed out on colored cardstock.
Step 2. Fold each of the tabs. Place on a piece of cardboard and trace. Still holding in place, begin folding back each tab and marking a line for each of these.
Step 3. Remove template and using an exacto-knife and ruler, cut out the template. Also score along the dotted lines with a steak knife, or very lightly with your exacto-knife.

Step 4. Fold all of the tabs you scored.
Step 5. Starting with one of the tabs, run a bead of hot glue along it, then fold and attach to where it meets. Continue doing this with all the tabs.
Now with your houses made, your ready to decorate.
