Upcycling Cardboard

Updated: Apr 6

Upcycling Cardboard Accessories is a set of video tutorials on how to create various accessories from cardboard.

Inspiration that started the project was the fact that over 400 million tons of paper and cardboard are produced world-wide each year. These products are often used for a short period of time and then discarded. Therefore, the videos aim to raise awareness of waste humans produce and inspire to reuse cardboard in a range of DIY videos. They include: saddle bag tutorial, purse tutorial, pencil case tutorial, desk pencil holder tutorial and case for glasses tutorial.

Each video first introduces “ingredients”/ what you will need and “cooking methods”/ steps on how to make a new cardboard product. Each video is accompanied with relaxing music for the user to enjoy while making their new cardboard items.
