I have multiple reasons why I didn't do it: laziness, the problem of getting so much cardboard and the fact that my cat wouldn't have gone into that bed anyway. She didn't like cat beds like that one.
Well, it's been a year and my dear cat is not with me anymore :( I should thank Instructables though, because the Pet Contest pushed me to finally make it for my new kitten!
Now it was about time!
I still had the cardboard cat bed I saw online on my mind when I started to make mine, but as I was making it, I realized that it wasn't going to be like that one. The shape I made is different and I am actually happy about that. Creating something completely new gives so much more satisfaction!
The whole cat bed is made out of cardboard layers, one above the other. Unfortunately I don't have a laser cutter so I had to cut all of those pieces using a cutter by hand.
Am I crazy? Probably yes.
It's been a long and hard work, but I can assure you that it was worth everything. And you know what? The excitement I had while cutting all those pieces made the whole process so much fun!
Step 1: What you need
- A LOT of corrugated cardboard - I used the one with 2 layers, it's about 6mm thick (0.23 inches)
- compass (you may need the extension that makes it longer too)
- white glue
- paint brush
