10 Things to Make with a Cardboard Box

Happy Monday! Did you have a great weekend, I hope? I'm typing this on Saturday and currently our kids are playing "slip 'n slide" in their socks on the kitchen floor (which is a diaster waiting to happen.) I'm blogging (obviously). And my husband is watching golf (snore). Our big plans for the day include nothing more than making banana splits and watching a movie later. Sledding has lost its luster. Skating is ho-hum. We are starting to get to that point in winter when we say, "Yep. This is getting old."

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I shared how to make pretty things out of drop cloths...and then tin cans. I decided to extend that series to include another humble material: the cardboard box. I hope you enjoy this roundup!
