And the ultimate cardboard genius...Mr. McGroovy His photos are all copyrighted so you will have to just check out his website and flickr albumns. Look at this amazing pirate ship that would be perfect for our upcoming birthday party! I would love for you to share links to some of your own cardboard crafts and projects!

3/5/12 Update...I made my boys their very own cardboard pirate ship. Instructions here.


  1. K..those are all adorable but your McQueen is amazing!! I attempted something similar last year but yours is WAY better :) Thanks for sharing so many great ideas!!

  2. Love the post. I love using cardboard boxes for all manner of things. A couple of Hallowe'ens ago I made my son a Thomas the Tank Engine costumer out of several cardboard boxes. I must post some pics of him on my blog. It's had a lot of admiring comments but sadly it no longer fits him. He's been asking for a new one though. Time to get the glue gun heating up I think.
