Russell at theverybesttop10.com has very kindly allowed me to write another guest post for his fantastic site so here are my “Top 10 Things You Can Make Out Of Cardboard”…
10 – Cardboard cut out pet costumes
What a brilliant idea. Grab an old cardboard box, a few coloured marker pens and your cat can instantly be anything from an astronaut to a Zulu warrior. There is much fun to be had with this I feel and I will be creating my superhero cat costumes as soon as this post is published.
9 – Cardboard clothes
If money is tight but you still want a new outfit to wear out at the weekend then make one from cardboard. If designer labels are your thing then take a look amongst the garbage behind the shopping mall for any boxes that once contained designer clothes. Take it home, grab your scissors and get creative. A couple of words of advice – if you make a t-shirt, be sure to make a pair of pants too and avoid going out in the rain.
7 – Cardboard boombox
If you love the 80s as much as I do then you will know how iconic the boombox is. I love my iPod just as much so it just makes perfect sense for me to combine the two in a cheap and simple manner with fantastic results.
6 – Cardboard coffins
We all die and it’s an expensive and sad time. Why spend thousands on a coffin that’s either going to be burnt or stuck in the ground. Use a cardboard box and choose your own design. I opt for the wine casket!
5 – Cardboard TARDIS
I’ve always wanted my very own TARDIS and if I can do it on the cheap – even better. I shall call my one the CARDIS and we will travel all through space and time.
4 – Cardboard furniture
What better excuse for eating chocolate is there than to say you are only doing it because you need some new furniture?
3 – Cardboard head speakers
Have you always wanted to see a sculpture of your head and also hear your favourite music playing from your mouth? Well, now you can – in cardboard. What’s the first song you would play? I would play “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head” by Kylie Minogue.
2 – Cardboard laptop case
Cut out a laptop/tablet shaped hole in a cardboard box, attach a nice leather strap and you’ve saved the environment as well as helped those Angry Birds beat those Pigs In Space.
1- A box
Useful for sooooo many things. As practical as it is stylish – the good old-fashioned cardboard box.
