The Top 10 Things You Can Make Out Of Cardboard…

Russell at 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.

Dry clean only…

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.

Death by cardboard…

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!

It’s cheaper on the inside…

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.

Carry me home…

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.

Simply the best…

1- A box

Useful for sooooo many things. As practical as it is stylish – the good old-fashioned cardboard box.

  2. A couple of years ago I made a “chocolate safe” to store chocolate. Though not actually secure I designed it to be minimalist and imposing with plain black exterior with a small plastic window.
