Eco-DIY: recycle old cardboard boxes into a cool laptop case

I’m particularly obsessed with cardboard boxes at the moment, because I’ve just moved house and the empties are everywhere. Of course I could just take them to the recycling depot down the road, but then I came across this awesome Instructable and just knew that this was what my boxes were destined to be.

What becomes of the rest of the boxes cluttering up my house is yet to be seen. If you have any brilliant recycling ideas, please leave a comment. Alternatively, if you live in the Cape Town area and are moving soon, you’re welcome to come and collect the boxes from me to reuse.

Wait — Is the photo of the case you actually made, or a photo from instructables of the case you plan to make later? I’m not sure whether to say good luck or good job… :)

Er… good luck would be appropriate at this time, it’s the Instructables photo. :)
