Cardboard is a really amazing material to work with, once you know how. At first it seems to be pretty useless—inflexible and weak. But the truth of the matter is that you really only need to know how to make it work with you, and then you have a medium with which you can do pretty much anything, including make lightweight, stable props!
So here’s my guide to basic methods of manipulating cardboard. Note: This is a beginner’s guide so it’s really simplified! But still, this should help someone out there with no idea where to start!
I love working with cardboard for all things and people who feel like trying their hand at inexpensive but effective props could do worse than reading this tutorial! =D
