I get lots of stuff in the mail via internet. So I have LOTS of boxes. I used two to make a cabinet:

Done solely with stuff found around my house, including cardboard (mail boxes) masking tape, mod podge, pennies, watch parts, and broken jewelry, and a lot of pages out of a book about Ireland that I bought at the thrift store a long time ago. I also added a length of ribbon between the... I can't remember what they're called, the things that hold paper together with two prongs? to hold the doors shut.

Next time, no masking tape to keep the top/bottom flat, instead I believe I'll use wire nails. It is sturdy enough, and is currently hung on the wall via thumbtacks and being used as a medicine cabinet. My 8 year old wants to help make one.

split pins!  Grin

Nice little cupboard. I love making cupboards, and boxes from card, and you can make them just to the right size too.  Smiley

That is very neat! The word you are looking for is Brads

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
