Don’t judge a box by it’s cover!

 In Blogs

Did you know that cardboard boxes have been around for almost 200 years? Yes we’re impressed too!

We use cardboard everyday for different reasons. Cardboard is a very useful material, in this blog we have collected some unique and interesting images of how some very creative people have used cardboard. Enjoy!

During that time cardboard boxes have changed shape and design hundreds of times and are used for shipping, storing and everyday food products, to name a few. Cardboard and paper packaging has become the largest single material consituting about 36% of the total Australian packaging market and with more than 5.5 millions tonnes used yearly in Australia, we definitely know we could not live without this amazing product.

So we wanted to pay tribute to our unsung cardboard hero with an array of creative ideas to keep you busy on weekends. Before you throw your moving boxes out to the recycling, take a look at these fun and cool projects that can be made with little cost and provide endless fun.
