Since Cardboard Safari was founded, we have always encouraged our customers to stretch their artistic legs and customize our products using paint, glitter, paper mache and more. Ten years later we are still amazed at all the ways artists use our products as canvases.
Long time friend and collaborater, Leah Yellowbird, is no exception. She took our Contour Droplet Panel and, using paint, created this masterpiece! See more images below. The detail is astounding!
We will be sharing more of Leah’s work in the coming months. In the meantime we encourage you to use Cardboard Safari products for your next crafting project!
One of the biggest problems when crafting is knowing where to begin. You have a vision for the project but implementing it is often more complicated than you realize.
Thankfully, Merlin the Cardboard Unicorn is the perfect template for creating one-of-a-kind designs that will have your friends asking “How did you do that?!”
One of our customers recently told us about their experience using Merlin as a template and shared with us the amazing results!
“My husband, Kevin made these by adding paper mache and acrylic paint. He was commissioned to make them for a mythology themed restaurant and they turned out so well that we ordered more to make some for our house and our friends and hopefully some to sell!”
Merlin the Unicorn is one of our most popular products and a favorite amongst our crafty customers. Be sure to check him out!

Why borg.com? To summarize the statement of editor C.J. Bunce, “. . . borg is the short form of cyborg, itself a shortened combination of the term “cybernetic organism.” At its core a cybernetic organism is the juxtaposition between the present and the future—the evolved organic meets future technology, usually technology meant to enhance, improve or replace a biological function. . . The seemingly unlimited boundaries and implications of these technologies have been pursued throughout popular fiction for years. . . I hope here, too, to pull together all science fiction, fantasy, entertainment–all pop culture–in one place.”
