Fun with Cardboard!

We have lived in our house for over a year now, and I have basically done nothing to make it cute.  I blame this on my crazy toddler to make myself feel better!  From time to time I decide that I should really do something in here, but then crazy toddler takes over and I do nothing.  Well, yesterday was one of those days and I actually did something!  I didn't want to go out and spend a bunch of money so I had to get creative.  I gathered up some supplies and got busy.  I decided that mod podge was the easiest thing to do, but I had to find something to mod podge.  This is when I discovered that cardboard is amazing!!!

The first thing I did was cut 3 squares of cardboard and cover them with scrapbook paper.  I then covered a coffee can with matching paper to make a cute utensil holder.  I set it all out and voila!

I was so excited about my basically free decor, and I decided that I needed more.  So....I found a cardboard box, cut off the lid, wrapped it with jute, and came up with this!

Fabulous, right?  I so can't wait for naptime, because I must make something else!
