Corrugated cardboard is ideal for inventing and creating, cheap, lightweight yet strong it folds, bends, rolls and twists easily. Contemporary cardboard craft projects for the home, celebrations and gifts, we have fallen in love with the Kangaroo which is not just a light, but whose pouch can also store a soft toy, a Lion cradle and the Penguin bedside table. The charm is that they are simple and cheap to make with lengths of tough and flexible cardboard, Kraft microbe, pins and sometimes a well chosen colour of paint. And that is in just the Cardboard Furniture section. Native Americans believe owls provide help and protection at night so why not try to make out of flexible cardboard and glue a semi-cylindrical lampshade frame with a sheet of transparent polyphane and decorated with brown wooden beads? More decorative projects include three wise monkeys, a fun moose head to mount on the wall, a chameleon and a camel. Maybe the most useful decorative items or gift ideas are what look like toys, animals from Noah's Ark, with the cutest baby elephant you've ever seen, the adult version of which will hide a plant pot inside; a hedgehog little pencil pot where the pencils blend in to the prickles; a cat container for sweets; a wolf decorative pencil box from the simple to the more advanced black cat shelf unit. 30 cardboard craft projects, these imaginative designs have a unique sense of humour to delight young and old alike. Use the simple templates, assembly diagrams and step-by-step instructions in this book. All in colour. 112pp in softback, 8" x 11".
