Cardboard box? Check! Tape? Check! Mad DIY skills? Check! If your child is the arty creative type, then they will certainly appreciate the portable art studio that Maya at maya*made has put together. Maya found the instructions in an old craft book, McCall's Giant Golden Make-It Book, which belonged to her grandmother.

By simply copying Maya's template onto some cardboard, cutting out with an X-acto knife and straightedge and then taping it together, you'll create a fast and handy portable easel. Maya also gives you instructions for creating an art caddy using a milk carton.
