Cardboard Safari Doesn't Have To Hunt For Design Ideas

The folks at Cardboard Safari sent out their March newsletter today, reminding me that I have not checked in with them for some time. I was wowed!  They have added quite a few more clever Cardboard Trophies, as well as full-bodied animals, to their collection. Plus, Cardboard Safari has just introduced a human mask and a cardboard bowling game!

The animal creations still fascinate me most.  These beautiful game animals are so intricately and variously carved and give so much dimension to the animal - even expression.  Here is Eyan, Cardboard Safari's new Elephant Trophy.

Isn't it amazing what cardboard can be formed to express? Just the fact that these animal trophies are made of cardboard expresses something doesn't it.  They are about conserving animal and plant life. (Yes, the cardboard used to make the designs has all been recycled.)

Here is another structurally dynamic, precision laser-cut trophy called Wayne.  Wayne is the first fish, a bass, in Cardboard Safari's collection.

Cardboard Safari works usually come in different colors, as well as sizes.  Look at the striking difference between the Bass Trophy above, and the one below.

 As promised, here is Cardboard Safari's first human mask; his name is Jack. What detail!

"Office Bowl" looks like it's as much fun as it is a lovely multi-piece sculpture.

Aside from the company's own designs which it makes and sells from its website, Cardboard Safari is involved in other projects that, who knows, may end up on its website too.  For example, here is the Cardboard Surfboard starter that the Safari team makes for a surfboard core.  You can learn all about it and purchase a build your own Cardboard Surfboard here.

In this space I could not possibly describe or show all of the ingenious designs that are made by Cardboard Safari. But you can see most of them on its website and order from it as well.  These lasered sculptures come in different sizes and natural colors, and if you want to, you can even paint them to match your decor.  Oh, they're also affordable.
