More about making your own "linoleum" for your dollhouse

As mentioned in the previous post, there are several ways to actually create your own dollhouse "linoleum" pattern.  

1.  Do a google image search for linoleum.  For best quality results choose to return images that are extra large.  When you find one that is to your liking, print it out and cover with clear laminate.  (note: be careful of copyrights, only use this idea for personal use.)

2.  Scrapbooking paper is another great idea for linoleum... just cover it with clear laminate and lay!

3.  This is my favorite!  Create your own custom linoleum using clip art.  If you have photo editing software such as Adobe Photoshop, use it.  Otherwise, you can insert little squares of clip art into a word processing program... alternate them with the same sized square of solid color to look more natural... and then cut and paste, filling up the sheet.  Print and laminate.  I'll include a sample for you to look at, or to use if you would like some sunflower linoleum for a sunny kitchen!  Just click on the one you would like and then either print or save to your computer.  (Don't resell them, obviously, since they have been given to you for free!)
