If your house is anything like mine, you probably go through a fair amount of diapers.
And with those diapers, come boxes. You could recycle them, of course.
Or you could use them to make some of these awesome toys, crafts, or home decor items (even an enormous Star Wars Imperial Walker. My jaw may have dropped a bit when I stumbled on this).
