Making a Cardboard Kitty Cottage

December 1, 2015

A cardboard kitty condo.This cat cottage, which is made from a cardboard box features a chimney where you an dangle toys for your cat.


Total Time: Less than one hour

Yield: One


  • 1 large cardboard box
  • 1 oval or square tissue box
  • pair of heavy scissors
  • leftover scrapbook or wrapping paper
  • adhesives, such as glue and tape


  1. Begin by cutting a hole in one end of the box to serve as the door, as shown.
  2. A cardboard kitty condo.
  3. Close the right and left flaps as shown. Tape the left flap shut (but not the right one).
  4. Make a hole in what is to be the roof. The hole should be slightly smaller than the bottom of the tissue box. Cut off the top and bottom of the tissue box to make the chimney. Leave a little ledge around the bottom of the tissue box, as shown, so it can be firmly glued down. Decorate the box with paper and glue it onto the hole you made in the "roof."
  5. A part for the Kitty Condo.

  6. Now decorate the rest of the house. Your house has an awning and a porch or patio area. I used flowers cut from wrapping paper and "planted" them in paper pots. You can also make a fence, windows, balconies, or whatever you like. Just glue it on the box.
  7. A cardboard kitty condo.
  8. To play: The chimney allows string toys to be dangled into the box. Open the front flap slightly to peek in a mousie toy.
