    I have a husband who regularly has me racking my brain helping him develop themes for his work with his players. I take the themes and run with them to create new objet d'arts to bring us good ju ju, and that the boys will think are cool. THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS PERFECT FOR MY PURPOSES!

    As far as you having lifted it from etsy, I offer two thoughts:

    1. Several years ago I read that in order to "copy" something, and claim it as your own, the new "copy" must be 20% different from the original - I've no idea how that 20% is determined, and I've not gone to the etsy site to compare. Not only have you not claimed this is your own, you've been upfront about having been inspired by something you saw on etsy. You've also posted (shared) your own, ingenious "intellectual property" that builds on - not copies - the model that inspired you.

    2. I don't know about you and anyone else on this site, but my days keep me pretty busy, and I have a personal rule about how I spend my free time. I keep things positive! I forbid myself to spend one unscheduled minute grousing, grumbling and complaining. If I found out I broke my rule by going out of my way to tell you how you should have spent your time, followed by essentially telling you you're unoriginal - I would jump on myself with both feet, then ground myself for at least a two days. (This might seem confusing because I'm trying to be light hearted and funny, and I'm not a funny person. Born without the gene)

    I appreciate the time and trouble you, and everyone who posts, goes to posting your projects!

    I think these are great and I don't see anything wrong in doing these because she made them different and from my opinion I think these look a better not that the others on etsy look bad but the seller used a plain box and put the cutouts in them and these are actually printed so you can make your own box not like the others that are pre made boxes and if you think about it it's like you make a frame and add wheels to it then put a body and add seats and an engine then you have a car but it's your own design that was inspired by other cars. Also isn't that why we are here to make something that someone else made and maybe even improve it in the process. Besides I doubt this person copyright any of this and if she did Momo isn't selling these either plus she did mention the idea came from that listing and not that she came up with it.
