Cardboard Houses: a Dream for both kids and grown-ups!


I’ve been thinking over a cardboard box for Minnie for a few months now, and I’ve been collecting ideas and inspirations for quite a while. Why have I not started making her my own DIY version yet? Well, my days have been pretty crazy recently but now I have no more excuses: I will have to go find a cardboard box big enough for the project I have in mind and then… no one will stop us! ūüėČ

In the meanwhile, I hope you will enjoy the following ideas, which I find gorgeous and very inspiring!
