1. Cover the floor area with pieces of scrap paper, letting it overlap and securing it to each other by using pieces of sticky tape. Don't stick the paper pieces to the floor, only to each other.

  1. Carefully remove the template, making sure that there aren't any loose pieces. Place on top of your printed flooring, taking into consideration how you would like to arrange the pattern/"grain" of the printed wood in your dollhouse.

  1. You will need the following: flooring printed on white cardstock, scrap pieces of paper, ruler, scissors, pencil, low tack sticky tape, good quality dollhouse wallpaper paste, foam brush, a plastic card (membership/rewards card), and a matt finish acrylic sealer (if you're using an inkjet printer, to seal the surface of the print - let the printed page dry for a few minutes before applying the sealer).

  1. To join two pieces, flip one piece over and attach a long strip of low tack sticky tape to the side of the cardstock where the seam will be.  Stick one side of the tape to the back of the cardstock (sticky surface of tape should face the worksurface).

  1. Start by making sure that the floor surface is as smooth and dust free as possible.

  2. Print your flooring on white cardstock. Flooring files by Stubborn Sheep Studio should be printed by choosing the "Shrink to fit" option to achieve the exact scale in the photos shown in my listings. Carefully trim off the edges.

  3. To create a template of the floor area, take a piece of scrap paper with straight edges and place it in a corner of the floor of your dollhouse.

  1. If you have a large area to cover, you can print out one or more pages and join it together.  My designs are such that two or more pages of the same design can seamlessly be joined horizontally or vertically.

  1. Carefully place the second page on top of the sticky side, making sure that the sides and pattern match up.  Smooth down.

  1. Gently lift the tape from the worksurface and flip the cardstock over (sticky side of tape should face upwards).

  1. Use the wallpaper paste to stick it to the floor of the dollhouse by following the manufacturer's instructions.  A plastic card (such as a membership/rewards card) is very handy to ensure that any bubbles are smoothed out.

  2. If you like, you can now seal the surface of the printed floor by using an acrylic sealer with the finish of your choice (a matt finish might work better for some wood look floors and a gloss finish for tiled look floors).

  1. Use the template to cut out the flooring from the printed cardstock and place it on the floor to check that everything is okay before sticking down.
