Paper Lantern Pendants

I made these lantern pendants as an exercise in miniaturization. While I wanted to make them in a more traditional method, I decided that for durability they would be better fashioned out of wood.

Cardboard Cat Scratching Pad

I decided to try making some of these because of their price in stores and how much cardboard I simply throw away in a month. I gathered all of the cardboard boxes I could find and cut them into 2″ wide strips on an old paper guillotine. This was more labor intensive that I expected. I glued the strips together with Elmer’s wood glue and clamped them for 24 hours. I made two separate units, which seem equal in durability to the store-bought models. The cats show no preference.

Variac Pendants

I created these Variac pendants from polymer clay, then made a silicone mold to replicate them in resin. Acrylic paint custom mixed then washed in black.
