Toy carton becomes tiny library

Some people see a 3-inch window carton and see, well, a small paperboard carton. Others, like the crafter in this short video, see the makings of a miniature Little Free Library.

The host transforms the packaging for a mini Care Bears toy into a dollhouse-size, wall-mounted library. She covers the carton’s paperboard insert with decorative paper to create the library’s interior and also configures a shelf for tiny books.

The outside of the box is converted to “wood” using woodgrain paper. A gable roof and Free Library sign, plus a stock of teeny books, complete the project.
