Before you recycle that old cardboard box you have lying around, take a look at this. Who knew that cardboard had this kind of potential? We're blown away! Click through to check out the amazing features hidden in this fantastic tree house.

LiEr of ikat bag constructed this amazing play sculpture in honor of National Reading Month. She and her daughters fell in love with Enid Blyton's The Enchanted Wood trilogy so, with cardboard, LiEr set out to bring the fictional world to life. The entire tree is almost 3 feet tall and has toilet paper tube chutes down that allow its tiny inhabitants to zoom from the top all the way down to the forest floor. And, yes, that's a crank handle at the top to allow them to be pulled back up again in a tiny cardboard basket.
