If you are looking for more furniture for your dollhouse then I have the craft for you.  Today I’m going to show you how to make Paper Furniture Foldables.  The cool part is the majority of the paper furniture doesn’t even need glue or tape to hold them together…. simply cut and fold.  We are going to make a Table, High Chair, Chair, Bed, Stool, Flower Box and even a Flower.  So, grab the materials needed and let’s get started.
