"Cardboard Boxes" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


 

1. Sled. Pull a small child (or a load of firewood) over the snow in a large cardboard box.
 

2. Dust cover. Keep dirt out of a small appliance, power tool, or typewriter— cut off the flaps of a box, put decorative adhesive plastic, such as Con Tact, on the sides and top, and use as a cover.
 

3. Table guard. Cut a large flat piece to protect work surfaces from ink, paint, glue, or knife and scissor nicks.
 

4. Mechanic’s helper. Keep a piece under your car’s engine in the garage or carport. Not only will it keep the floor clean by catching drips, but the color and location of the leaked fluids on the cardboard will help a mechanic identify potential problems.
 

5. Gift of suspense. Place a friend’s gift inside a series of increasingly bigger cardboard boxes, each one specially wrapped.

 

 

6. Bed tray. Remove the top flaps and cut lap-wide arches from the two long sides; cover the top with attractive adhesive plastic, such as Con-Tact.
 

7. In tray. Cut off the top and one large panel from a cereal box; slice the short sides at an angle.

 
8. Puppet theater.
Stand a large cardboard box on end; cut a big hole in the back for puppeteers to crouch in and a smaller one high up in the front for the stage.
9. Magazine holder.
Remove the top of a deter gent box, then cut the box at an angle, from the top of one side to the bottom third of the other.
10. Place mats. Cut several 12- x 18- inch pieces of cardboard and cover them with colorful adhesive plastic, such as Con-Tact.
