Recycling at its best

Recycled shipping boxes and cardboard = awesome cat scratcher

One thing people may not realize is that as an artist, I have to keep a LARGE supply of packing materials on hand.  Much of it consists of boxes and tissue paper or kraft paper, so I recycle whatever I can.  For instance, tissue paper that ends up in return shipments can be used again in other shipments or I use it when wrapping gifts.  Thanks to Design Sponge, I found a great use for corrugated cardboard- DIY cat scratchers!  This is actually a photo of the first one I made modeled by Tiny, the cat.  Warning: this project will give your Carpal Tunnel a workout, depending on the thickness of cardboard, so be sure to take many breaks.  Cute results, though.
