I have a lot of cardboard just lying around. What should I do with it? Answered

Any suggestions will be appreciated, it could be more helpful if you linked an instructable to it though.  Thanks!

There is very little you cannot build with a large pile of cardboard - furniture, sculptures, armour...

Then look at it this way... what do you want or need to make first?
(Something must top your list).

I have been running it through my shredder and tilling it into the garden. If you don't have a garden yourself you can bag it up and give it to someone who does. You might even be able to sell it for a few dollars a bag.

Imight actually use that idea...

The skys the limit! Here are some of my ideas for you (some are peoples Instructables I have seen):
-If you like Transformers, there are a number of Transformer costume Instructables (the best ones are of Soundwave and Optimus)
-Maze for small pets
-Indoor rabbit hutch (in a cage, my rabbit sleeps inside a box)
-Big boxes are like magnets for younger kids
-Play armor (also for younger kids)
-Extra backing for picture frames
