Gone are the days of messy crafting projects that look worse and cost much more then simply buying it from the store. With the rise of Pinterest, the internet has become much better at producing DIY projects that are simple, smart, and eco friendly. My favourite for the day is this set of sleek cardboard desk pieces from Japan.

The set features five endangered animals which are constructed using well-thought out cuts and notches, no messy glue required. They’re light-weight and the perfect way to recycle packing boxes.
