EDISON, N.J. - Aug. 10, 2017 - PRLog -- Got some cardboard boxes lying around that you don't know what to do with? Well, before you throw them out, think out-of-the box, literally. Whether for your kids, your husband or even your next door neighbor, there is a function and purpose for every cardboard box out there.

That being said, let's find something for the kids first, shall we?

What You'll Need:

Basically, you already probably have everything that you'll need.


-Box Cutter

-Duct Tape


-Paint brush

What To Do:

Cut and tape. That's it! No need to paint really, simply cut out a couple of windows and a door. If you're really feeling artistic, then simply cut out and paint a hitch, lights and a license plate as well.


What You'll Need:

(2) Corrugated cardboard boxes

-Thick craft paper

-Packing tape


-Pipe cleaners

What To Do:

Cut out two handbag shapes from corrugated cardboard and glue the thick craft paper on. Secure around the edges with clear packing tape, and make a hole on both sides of the handbag shape. Run a pipe cleaner on each side of the bag through the hole, and make a loop. Make enough for each guest.


What You'll Need:

-The original cardboard box a gift came in.

-A felt-tip pen.

-An inspiring, thank you sentiment to write as a quote.

What To Do:

A handwritten thank-you card gift will go a long way and be appreciated for an even longer period of time. These cardboard "postcards" can go "as is" and there's no need of any envelopes.


What You'll Need:

-One plain cardboard box

-One or two small plastic bags punched with drainage holes.

-Potting soil.

-A pretty house plant. Go for it!

What To Do:

Simply line the cardboard box with plastic bags that have holes punched in them for drainage facility. Pour some potting soil and then gently drop a plant inside and cover with more soil.


What You'll Need:

-A cardboard box, any size

-Decorative duct tape with or without color magic markers

-Also, some contact paper if you have any available

-Good, strong scissors

*Additional tip: they also make fantastic furniture sliders to help protect your floor.

What To Do: Cut out cardboard pieces in rounded circles. Cover with contact paper or color with magic markers.


Being biodegradable, cardboard pieces make great weed killers.

What You'll Need:

-Flat pieces of cardboard

-Soil and mulch

What To Do:

Simply place flat pieces of cardboard on top of the areas most prone to weed and water to saturate. Once you cover areas with soil and mulch, you'll not be able to tell there's anything there. Perfect solution for your weed problems.

And there you have it! Our top six creative cardboard ideas for your kids and for the household as well.
