Welcome to Cardboard Box Office – our homemade creations of some of your favorite scenes from film and TV built from some of our favorite domestic junk.
The project began after finding that we had accumulated both a lot of cardboard boxes (due to moving to a new country) and a baby (due to giving birth). With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun.
The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity. Enjoy!
Lilly, Leon, & Orson
Awesome pictures!!! You are constructing extremely beautiful memories for your future. The best for you and your baby. Greetings from Chile!

How about a James Bond?
Lili from Germany
James Bond is a great idea! Hmm but which one…?
Fen from Australia
Cheers Fen! 😀
Having also moved to another country with a young family, you have just inspired me to step my cardboard game up, my sons and I make things, but this is the level I need to be on.. creating memories and building character to passed on for generations.. Keep up the inspiration
Ben in Ghana
Thanks so much Ben! We’re glad to have inspired you! No need to step up your game. The fact that you’re simply making things with your sons will mean everything to them.
Muy bueno! y muy original! Muy lindas fotos!

Just saw your stuff on the Graham Norton show in England, so I’ve checked out the rest- all fantastic! Well done, a great idea, looks like you have lots of fun and will be fab for you to look back on in years to come- especially little Orson! 🙂
Ps, lots of chuckles at your Graham Norton special- Nick Frost’s reaction to his ‘bear’ self was classic 😀
Haha, yeah. I’m not sure he appreciated it, but admittedly it did look like him.
Thanks Kerry 🙂
Imaginative, fun and beautifully made- I wish I had 1% of your talent!

Amazing 😉 you make the world better … (+ you save people, fight the evil, travel in futur….etc 😉 ) a french fan !
You lot are nuts. Love it! Remember making Buzz lighter year and hurcules outfits out of cardboard with my dad for my little brother when I was little and have some great memories. So I can guarantee that baby Orson will grow up looking back and knowing he had a great childhood. Good luck with all future projects. Xx

I have to say, best blog I’ve read in a very long time! Loving the pictures, you should make a book out of it!
Orson you lucky boy! What an amazing set of parents you have. Their imagination seems not to have limits, I surely hope it doesn’t. Thanks for sharing such wonderful moments with us.
i just thought, if you havn’t already, maybe you could do a take on the life of pi.
hope you are enjoying your new life in new south wales.
cheers from grand junction, colorado, USA.
First heard about your site on Graham Norton on BBCA, and really enjoyed following up to look at the site myself. Really great work!
I only have one request – being that I’m from and currently live in San Diego – I think there should be a Top Gun in the future! Maverick and all…
Other than that, I look forward to seeing more of you guys on here!
Just saw your site on a recorded episode of Graham Norton on BBCA. This is the funniest site I’ve seen in a looooong time. These are amazing pictures to pass down to future generations.
Soooooo, how about some Harry Potter or Hobbit or Transformers??? Those would be hilarious!!!
You’re amazing ! Great job 🙂 I’m sure you’re having lots of fun and you’ll have when Orson’s older.
You guys are awesome! You never fail to make me laugh!
I’ve just discovered your website. It’s so delightful seeing these pictures. Congratulations for your creativity. What an awesome ideia! There’s so much love in this house that we can even feel it. Wish you all the very best!
Cheers from Brazil! 🙂
Cool parents + cute baby = amazingly awesome family! This website’s just fantastic. 😀
