“Gingerboard” House

My friends Billie and Tootie (who own the green-themed art and design store Reform School here in L.A.) blew my mind today when they gave me a Christmas present wrapped up in the most amazing way–in a handmade house they created from recycled cardboard! I love all the little details, such as the scalloped kraft paper shingles and the sheet music peeking through the doorway and windows. This is such an inspiring project and I definitely plan on keeping this box on display in my studio year-round! More pix in the CRAFT Flickr pool. Link.
