Laptop stand with a pizza box.


Russian Ilya Andreev brings us this idea, a laptop stand with a pizza box. Of course, every day I see all kinds of reuse for a multitude of everyday waste, but this medium really surprised me. It will surely not be very durable but it will be very original. He would never have thought of using the pizza box for this.

I have to admit that I am not going to do this, I do not have these type of boxes in my life, but if one falls into my hands by chance I will try it. Here you have the instructions in pictures, who is encouraged ???
