Got Cardboard?

Recycled Cardboard Art Projects

If you're like me, you have some leftover cardboard boxes from the holidays, courtesy of Amazon. 
(I asked my friend who works for UPS, if they are bitter about Amazon Prime and the onslaught of deliveries they bring, not to mention the 2-day delivery guarantee. He just smiled politely.) ๐Ÿ˜‰
I love coming up with ideas to utilize this humble material. I think it makes a great canvas for a variety of projects. And there is something so satisying about creating "something" from "nothing". Once cut out with an X-acto knife, this tropical fish was created using some craft acrylics and magazine pages with a 2 inch circle punch for colorful scales. I raided my craft closet and used various materials to add some extra punch: puff, paint, sequins and glue combined with black paint for outlining. You could use whatever you have on hand. I glued some twine to the back so it could be hung. This would be a great project to do with the kids over the rest of your winter break.

  1. I adopted a baby monkey after I found him on the side of the road next to his mother's lifeless body. The baby didn't know what to do and was sad and crying so I decided to take him with me and help raise him. So I decided to daily post a YouTube video of our baby monkey so everyone can see him. Here's my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYm1jZ-9CFQD1inehrhYcIg
