. . .I cut my house pieces out of a recycled box.
Then, using a thin layer of glue, I stuck the pieces to fabric. I used one color for the front/back/sides, a contrasting color for the roof, and another color for the door.
Then I cut my pieces out like so.
I snipped of any corners, and made little snips all along the top curve of the door.
Next, I glued the fabric edges down with Tacky glue
Then I cut little X's in the windows to make little foldy-over flaps.
