Cardboard Clothes

Ever since I set up a recycling bin to house stuff like plastic bottles, toilet rolls and cardboard pieces for the purposes of craft work, I realise just now much junk we accumulate.

Anyway, there was this morning when my kids were whisked away from me for an hour or so so that I could rest during my recuperation period. Emptying the last breast pad in a box, I got a sudden burst of inspiration and could not help but to do this instead of sleep:



I had to feed Bun while Bubbles pegged the cardboard clothes to a line (after "hand washing" them in a basin). When I came back, she was pegging her own socks on the line too.

This made for a happy morning :)

So fun! Love the clothes you drew :) You could make some paper dolls next - and pretty them up with these clothes :)

Such a cute and fun idea! Wish I have more creative juices like you. We have loads of cardboxes/cereal boxes sent to recycling every week!

Little Miss Snooze:
You have plenty of creative juices! Just look are your recent culinary adventures! I thought of doing this also to help train her finger muscles!

Thank you! It was fun to "design" the clothes!

mummybean:
Thanks babe. I am so much better now. Pain is bearable, I just can't lift heavy objects for the time being!
