Picture of Art From Cardboard!
This instructable may give some ideas on how to make some art for your walls. The material is reused corrugated cardboard. For these projects, I selected some disney characters,as well as the bird pictures you see, and I either free handed them, or used an opaque projecter to trace my patterns. Cutting out the figures is easy on the bandsaw. All paint used is craft acrylics, dries fast and is water clean up! I like the plain look, as well, but did use a little acrylic paint to put in highlights and add an additional touch. Of course you can make them as large as you want.

I made this cut out by drawing the figure on the cardboard and then cutting with the band saw. Individual pieces are glued onto a cardboard backing, using white glue.

Your card board pictures remind me of a wood art caled Intrasia, it would beso nice to do them in the card board. For future art see if you can find some on the internet. I love your cardinal he is so real looking

You used a band saw on cardboard? Sure works, but sounds like overkill.
Lovely job on these.
