Cardboard Creations!

In my short stint at Design school, one of my favorite projects was to design a chair that I could actually sit in, and it had to be made from corrugated cardboard.  (Wish I still had the chair to show you but,  for some reason, it never made the move to our new house.  Bummer)  So,  a while back, I decided to make something small with one of the many cardboard boxes around the house.
I used the Vitatops box that my oldest daughter bought a while back.
They came in this sturdy box.  So, when I decided to make a cardboard project this was the box!
Here are my finished cardboard tea light candles.  If you want to see how I made it you can look at my previous cardboard post.  
And now, I want to share some other ideas from my favorite idea source, pinterest!  If you want to know more about any of these, just click on the link below the picture.  
Beautiful!  From recyclart
More storage ideas using diaper boxes
How sweet!  I love this cut-out idea
How about these cardboard logs by design sponge?
I even tried chalkboard paint on a scrap piece of cardboard.  I love the simplicity and the price tag here - free!  
(This was a quick experiment with a not so great photo.  But, I like the idea and will be trying more with colored chalkboard paint soon!)


  1. hiya mimi i heart cardboard too it is sooo versatile x loved those circular shelves your featured too x here is a good cardboard tip i got yesterday , use it cut up into small squares in place of 3d foam when card making to raise your designs off the page , simply cut the size you need and use glue stick on each side and hey presto cheap foam 3d pads !
    happy crafting


I am so glad you are here! Please leave a comment or note or whatever it takes so I can get to know you too!
