I don’t know about you, but it seems that I often have an extra cardboard box on my hands. The boxes should probably serve as warning to cut back my online shopping, but instead, they put me in a Designer MacGyver state of mind. I’ve done some searching to find creative ways to upcycle these old boxes, and I think you’ll agree with me – these ideas are downright crafty. Whether you’re working with a cereal box or a dishwasher box, there is sure to be a craft that’s just your speed.
This first idea really inspired my inner craftiness. It. Is. So. Stinkin’. Adorable. And it’s made from a cardboard box. What more could a MacGyver (and a mini MacGyver) ask for? Head on over to The Mouse House to see how Hayley made it. Make sure to check out the inside too — it’s just as adorable.
If your mini MacGyvers love movie night, consider making these cardboard cars for your own “drive-in” movie. See how Stacy of Not Just a Housewife made these colorful creations.
Although email and text messages may have replaced a great deal of snail mail, I think we can all agree that a thank you note is best received hand-written. If you have a stack of thank you notes to write, try creating postcards from pieces of cardboard.
