Boxing Clever

So Christmas has come and gone and what's left? A huge mound of chocolate? More food than you could ever eat? 
And … a pile of empty boxes?
Cardboard is beautiful
especially when exposed
Revealing the ridges
hidden beneath

Like Teak or Oak
its moving color and texture
are alluring

I like my cardboard in large pieces
The larger, the less limited
the potential

Cardboard is experimental
Cardboard is gold
Cardboard can be cut
And Cardboard can fold

I found a piece of cardboard today
and breathed my fingertips across it's surface
inhaling the hair-like filaments it grows
listening to the harmony it sang

Cardboard is beautiful
especially when exposed
Cardboard can be cut
and Cardboard can fold

Wishing you the most fabulous of Boxing Days - until the next time


  1. Oh some fabulous ideas - love the cardboard stars!

  2. Now I understand what boxing day is (wink-wink).
    Don't know why I don't use cardboard more often - I love the texture & the great kraft color.
