Method
Find a cardboard box to make your doll's apartment. We found a great plain black box in our local fruit and vegetable shop, but you could use a plain brown one or paint one as a first step.
Plan what rooms you want to have in your apartment. We split ours into four 'zones' - a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom and living area.
Choose pictures from the IKEA catalogue for each room/zone and cut out.

Glue the pictures into each zone. You could explore 3D concepts by gluing items like sofas, beds and tables onto the bottom of the box and items like bookcases, shelves and wardrobes onto the walls of the box.
