Using a cardboard box, you can make yourself one of those ubiquitous letters that you see everywhere, ones that can be painted or decorated in papier-mâché or decoupage. Toilet paper rolls become art supply holders or a garland. Origami becomes cufflinks and kirigami becomes wall decorations. Graph paper or playing cards can become a lampshade. Anything is possible from the obvious to the surprising.
Truly surprising is that both my adult daughter and I found things we liked in this one book and we both agreed that this is a book we need to own. Each project has a “level” and I tried one of the level 3 projects. It wasn’t as easy as it looked. Oops. I’ll have to try a level 1 or 2 and see if I can’t work my way up to the level 3. I’ll admit, some of the projects are a bit odd. Where does one find gum wrapper papers anymore? Not the foil. That’s easy to find. But that paper wrapper? I have a few packs of gum in the house right now and I guess the brand I buy no longer uses them. Still, I remember making those gum wrapper chains when I was a little girl. They were fun but I never knew what to do with them once they were made. Now I know there are all kinds of things one can do with them!
