Frugal Fun with Cardboard

Estéfi Machado

After discovering and writing about Milimbo last week, I became a little obsessed with cardboard. Turns out pretty much anything can be made from this readily available material. Anything. Of all the examples, I was particularly impressed with \Estéfi Machado, a particularly crafty mom and photographer who makes toys out of leftover party supplies, and any other disposable cardboard she has lying around. The camera above is one of her latest, but the others are worth a look as well. (The Michael Jackson album is particularly rad.)
