Cardboard

It is amazing how creative one can get with just cardbox. Here are a few examples of how you can turn a piece of corrugated cardbox into something quite unexpected. Cardboard blankets by Diane Steverlynck
James Roberts' cardboard hangers available here.

Oh this is great! I'm an interior architecture student and this semester we're having to make all sorts of stuff out of cardboard. We recently completed this project in which we were to make a portal on a doorway to a faculty member's office: http://cggustafson.blogspot.com/2009/03/portalpanel.html

I've been a fan of your blog since i discovered it. I'm not a naturally creative person. You blogs are very inspirational! Didn't know there are so many quaint and lovely ideas in the world. And this entry on cardboard has to be one of my favourites. The next time i've cardboard in my hands, it's not going into the bin!

A great collection of cardboard things!

I make a webcomic called My Cardboard Life and I get through a lot of cardboard making it. I'm not sick of it yet though.
