Welcome to my cardboard craft blog

Whether you are just plain bored or simply too broke to purchase other materials; cardboard is free! Cardboard is such a versitile craft medium that you can make just about anything from it. All you need is a little knowledge about different construction techniques to ignite your own art passion for cardboard. This blog is intended to show the construction techniques I use in my own cardboard crafts. When you learn the secrets of creating strength with cardboard you can create whatever you desire. From simple items like picture frames to extremely large pieces of usable furniture; it will all be possible. Travel along with me as I show you the secrets hidden within the cardboard. Go green or save a tree or just to keep it out of a landfill.... whatever your choice of phrases.... start creating your own cardboard art. If you find this blog helpful, please recommend it to your friends.

If you are new to this blog it's best to read the numbered labels first. ie: 1 - What do you see? 2 - Tools you need etc.

In those labels you will find the basic information you need to get started making your own cardboard furniture and crafts.

Breakfast bar - section 2, step five

Now it's time to close up the inside of this section.  Measure from front to back.

Measure side to side and cut a piece of board to fit this area.

If there is a bad spot on one side of your board it's ok to use it without repair because it won't be seen later.

Get out your water and kraft tape.

Kraft tape is water activated

Put it along the joins of the piece.  It's not necessary to use hot glue for these inside pieces because the kraft tape will hold it just fine.

Cover the join for the front too.

You will add a piece for the top and bottom as well as top and bottom of the center shelf area.

Lay the piece on it's side and cut pieces to cover these areas too.  Here you see this section setting upright.

On to the next step.  I probably won't get to the next step for a few more days.  I have quilts to finish first.
