It became this tower of pizza boxes.
But wait - they open out to this
which becomes this:
which, upon adding the right sort of stationery
provides hours of silly fun.
We even made erasers
that really work!
And everything folds up and gets stored away when you're done.
We thought they would fit right in at our school party.
So we had the guests make their own easels to take home.
They were given one of those bare modified-pizza-boxes,
and a handful of other things, and they put theirs together in minutes.
