Ever wonder what you could make with styrofoam from packaging? I hate to throw it away.

My husband has a small business making craft tools for carving styrofoam into anything you want to make. It is a great way to use recycled packing foam from stuff you buy, and if you go to places like Sears with large items shipped you can often get big chunks of foam. The tools from his company (Hot Wire Foam Factory, at http://www.hwff.com) can be used to easily make displays for Department 56 village houses, like these:

Using a hot wire to craft foam is really not at all messy, unlike any other method of cutting foam. He's got a really big gallery of projects people have done and sent in pictures from, and descriptions of how they made stuff if you are interested:

Can't decide what to be if I grow up so I have to keep trying new things!
