One of our latest projects involved playing around with quick-drying concrete to make these geometric bookends that are now complementing our cookbooks on our kitchen shelf — and we're digging the modern architectural feel they ended up with!
We detailed out the entire step-by-step process (including a free template for making the mold) in our latest project post for eHow. The molds are simple to make and are perfect to use with recycled cardboard from shipping or moving boxes:
They were so fun to make, we're already dreaming up new ideas for fun ways to mold concrete — a good start might be mini versions of these guys for paperweights.
Head on over to eHow to see more pictures of these bookends with step by step instructions for making a pair of your own.
