DIY Suitcase House Tutorial

Welcome to this week’s post, where I’ll be showing you how to make a simple (and adorable!) small pet house from a cardboard Dollarama suitcase. Let’s begin!

For this DIY you’ll need:

  • Marker
  • Craft knife
  • Cardboard Dollarama suitcase
  • Doorway template (optional)

Using your craft knife, cut the bottom out of the suitcase.

Now draw a door somewhere on the suitcase, and cut it out. I made mine on the side, and used the inside edge of a packing tape roll as a template. You could put the doorway in the roof, side, front, or possibly a corner. You could even add multiple doors!

The DIY is complete! When I saw this suitcase I knew I could do something with it, and I’m quite happy with the result.
