Yes, you could easily buy ONE, but ..

  • WHAT would happen to the pack of leftover boxes from the post office taking away space in the garage? Recycling!

  • The EXCITEMENT of the kids because we are cutting up boxes!

  • The SILLYNESS of Soren because he brings his TOY SAW for cutting the cardboard boxes.

  • Seeing their FASCINATION how to create something new and already all ideas - and we can do this and that.
The girls went to bed but the tod kept helping and and working on his project  and choosing papers for the big one so we ended up with all the doggie and kitty and star ones here. And finished with some more glue and tape our paper  and cororin book holder to get some organizing in here. Leland rather would have bought one, but  we denied.

All we needed
  • 3 Priority Mail Boxes about 11 x 13 x 2 3/8 (even used ones are still perfectly good for that project because you cut one side off anyway to make them fitting to your size of your paper, but flat is easier cutting)
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • 4 Pages of Scrapbooking Paper for example

Just as a tip if you ever make one, measure before, our fourth layer was just perfect, just 1/4 inch too high in the shelf, so it got chopped off again.
