Home Work - The TP Flower Project Some months ago I stumbled upon a really fun DIY with your kids blog post. While I have no kids, I still thought of saving that post and perhaps even try it myself one day (with or without kids...). Time passed and I completely forgot about it, until about a couple of months ago when I was going through my never ending "bookmarked web links" and I found it again. This time I left that page open and started working on it. At first I had to save every empty toilet paper roll.

Tutorial: how to make a toy dog kennel for free. You know how when you buy a kid a big present they often end up playing with the box? Well this is a tutorial on how to make use of spare cardboard and create a gift for free. I have made a dog kennel but you could very easily adapt yours to make a stable, fire station, doll house, barn etc. Although you can use any old boxes I like the look of brown boxes and they worked well for the kennel. You want to try and get as big boxes as possible/necessary.

page corner bookmarks This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection.
Jungmo Kwon SUP.SOG, new lighting by Jungmo Kwon, evokes the forest through imagery and the use of cardboard. The designer extends the life of the humble packing material by using the poetry of light to convey a sense of peace and nature. The intention is twofold: to be more aware of the materials we throw away and to remember the natural chaos found within nature. + jungmokwon.blogspot.com Toilet Paper Roll Wall Art Well that’s a mouthful! So the time has come, it’s Pinterest Challenge time again! Every season Sherry from YHL and Katie from Bower Power throw a little link party to get people to stop pinning things and actually start making. This couldn’t have come at a better time because I have wanted to start this project forever and once Miss Kelly made her way into my kitchen I knew it was time to start it. This was the image I saw that sparked me to start saving my toilet paper rolls.
