Okay, I am stuck here on Rigel VII for the summer, really me mum's house, so I had to scavenge some things to make this instructable. I did not have access to to my usual spiffy designer materials so I made this with minimal materials on hand. I even had to raid Caitlin's art supplies to color this thing in. Materials: Dilithium Crystals - not really needed here but find some to build the ship. Lithium Rain - not really needed here either but will be around whether you like it or not.
Acquire lots of cardboard.You should ideally find several large flat boxes to use for the outside frame sheets of the couch. The boxes we used came from two bookcases, two desks, a small kitchen table, a bed, a coffee table, and some miscellaneous boxes we borrowed from friends. However, you can make due with lots of small boxes as well, though a few large pieces is recommend. Hold on to any large pieces of styrofoam that come with the boxes. A packing tube can also be useful too.

DIY Cardboard Chairs
Although we don’t claim to understand it, a cat that has installed itself in a cardboard box is a happy cat. You can exploit this mysterious fact to make a your own simple corrugated cardboard cat bed like this one, designed as a kitty-sized chaise lounge . Since it’s just cardboard, it’s also easy to modify this basic design to suit your own (or your cat’s) taste. There are already a bunch of high-end cardboard cat bed setups out there ( example 1 , examples 2-4 ), as well as other designs and even chaise lounges . So why bother? We are again motivated by the fact that cats like cardboard boxes .
