Cleverly-Crafted Cardboard.

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

Who knew that out of plain old cardboard, it was possible to construct a Polaroid camera?


A pendulum clock that really works?


A handsome pair of men's dress shoes? (Custom orders available!)


I was inspired to search for these cardboard curiosities (all available on Etsy) after seeing "Caine's Arcade," a ten-minute film that's received a ton of web attention this week, and for good reason. I watched it this evening and was so impressed, I had to repost it here in case any of you out there haven't seen it yet. It's most definitely worth a watch - I guarantee it will brighten your day.

I'm going to the arcade on Saturday!! This kid has been blowin' up, his story was on SCPR today and on all of the online LA news sites too. He is my hero.
