• Scissors
• Glue

Here's how you make it...

1. Prepare your background paper. Glue a small strip of green paper onto the bottom of a full sheet of sky blue paper.

2. Cut out your printed paper White House. Cut around each piece of the building itself, and don't forget to cut out the flag! Have a look at the smaller cut out, you'll notice some small rectangles with the words "cut out" in them. You will need to cut out all of these rectangles to make the "pillars" on your White House.

3. Glue the biggest (or back of the White House) onto your construction paper - as if the building is sitting on the green grass.

4. Now you will need to put on the front "pillar" section of the building. Have a look at the smaller part of the building, you'll notice a dotted line at either end, fold along the dotted line in the direction of the arrows.

5. Glue each folded end onto your White House where it says "Glue here". It is made to stick out in an arch and be three dementional.

6. Last, but not least, glue on your American flag!
