Awesome Family Continues to Recreate Movie and Television Scenes Using Cardboard Boxes

Parents Lilly and Leon Mackie have continued to recreate famous movie scenes for their Cardboard Box Office project. After moving to a new country with a newborn baby, the Mackies had accumulated a lot of extra cardboard boxes and household items. Rather than throwing them away, the couple decided to use these materials to make weekends at home more fun for their now 2-year-old son Orson. “The costumes, props, and sets in Cardboard Box Office are created entirely out of everyday household items, toys, cardboard, and three individuals slowly losing their sanity,” explained the creative couple.

By reproducing scenes from movies such as The Breakfast Club and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, the family has made some amazing memories that will last a lifetime. The trio also started designing cardboard scenes from popular television series such as Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones, delighting fans everywhere with their clever and adorable imitations of well-known characters.
