Cardboard?

Not only does Gary Garay make fun ice pops, he also creates shoes from cardboard. I couldn't resist posting about them! Speaking of cardboard, did you see the amazing cardboard portraits by Paul Ahern on Aesthetic Outburst? Wish I would have thought of that - so clever! I love the use of ordinary materials in new ways.

diana - these remind me of a neat book that sent me on a cardboard sculpture rage about 10 years ago. it's called 'paris flea market' and one chapter is devoted to outrageous things made from cardboard! you'd never know unless you knew!
