The Beauty of Cardboard

I’ve discussed my love of cardboard before – here are a few links to fantastic cardboard projects.

LiEr at Ikat Bag really knows how to get the most out of a cardboard box! This post documents how she has transformed boxes into mailboxes, a dog kennel, a guitar, a boat, an oven, a puppet stage, a castle, a donut shop/candy emporium/general store…

Filth Wizardry is another great resource for cardboard box activities. Check out the cardboard barbie house, cardboard easels, cardboard pizza, and giant cardboard rocket ship!

Maya Made shares a tutorial on how to make a portable art studio out of cardboard. This project is taken from a vintage McCall’s Make-It Book that Maya’s grandmother used in her nursery school!

Since I started this blog, we’ve used cardboard boxes to build a washer/dryer and a no-frills cardboard box car. Shoeboxes are great for organizing drawers, and for making simple doll beds.

Do you know of any other great cardboard projects? If so, I'd love to hear about them!
