Cardboard DIY Crafts

Frank Gehry’s Wiggle Chair had a major influence on me.  The creativity and craftsmanship involved in transforming a common discarded material into something so gorgeous and yet functional is simply ingenious!

I’ve been experimenting a great deal in upcycling corrugated cardboard into plant pots, file holders, iPhone stands, boxes, etc.  Yet my greatest encouragement in indulging such meaningless work was when my mother and brother started bringing me useless cardboard without my request.  I’m brought up in a typical Chinese family that doesn’t exchange direct verbal compliments between family members, so their actions can only be viewed as a sign of approval and appreciation!
