Anyway, I thought I'd commemorate Earth Day by shouting out about some of the recent cardboard creations I've seen at some of my newly-favorite blogs.
Kitten Muffin at Filth Wizardry made, among other spectacular cardboard things, a very clever pizza, beautiful flowers and vases, ingenious carwash, and giant rocketship that I covet but have been banned from making by husband because I reached the space limit in our house several cardboard projects ago. Sad.
MaryAnne at Thrifty Craft Mama made some marvelous cardboard furnishings for kids and dolls, including a washer/dryer, a fridge, doll beds and a classic and simple birds-eye-view dollhouse for peg dolls.
My current cardboard favorite by Karin at made by k is this unbelievable cardboard model of her nursery.
This issue of Parenting Magazine started it all for me, with ideas for cardboard race car, oven, lemonade stand, puppet theater, dollhouse and pet basket.
And here's my bit to start a cardboard revolution - some links back to old cardboard posts - boomerang, TV, doll bunk bed, traffic signal lights, cake, box of dirt, car, mailbox, doll wardrobe and some other things to make with a box.
What can you find in a box?
