What really captures my eyes is the boxes that can be built and designed to give quite a lovely flair and bring some personalized beauty to one's own projects. From baskets, tea boxes, watch boxes, Japanese bowls, and more! Every pattern and step is presented inside for one to use to build these exactly for themselves. So for such an inspirational build very nice.
I really like it! I know by looking inside this book I felt quite amazed that so much can be made with a few materials and the main one cardboard. Except having cardboard glue, it all seems quite easy to find and put- together with all the patterns and style found inside this book. There are so many ones can make with the different patterns to switch up and try.
Vintage Cardboard Crafting really takes the joy of creating something new from something old. Especially, the reuse of cardboard, which for me is something I have at home all the time with giant book deliveries and goods bought online. The take on cardboard to make anything in this book will really amaze the reader. Thank you!
Amazing! Lastly, from the thick board to the sturdy material. It really creates a unique way to make cardboard look like metal, wood, or some other material, other than cardboard/paper that is!
I enjoy this book, but in my opinion it’s for advanced projects... but not good for beginners
Super love this book!
