"I knew I would be on a train most of the day so took some photos of my local London Fields park and made a paper pop up for the food tray. Hopefully when the next passenger pulls down the tray they will get a pleasant surprise."
"This tie acts as a business card presenter." Amazing. Don't miss the video below.
"I visited a factory and looked around for something to make. I found some rope and a wooden armchair and decided to make a swing as there was a high beam on the ceiling."
"It did actually taste great, maybe a little thick but still lovely."
"Today I made a shelf from coloured pencils by gluing them together. I was surprised at how strong it was using two layers of pencils."
"Balloons are great, I've had some good fun with them over the years and socks are just one of those excellent inventions. So I thought why not bring the two together? By inserting a balloon into a sock and inflating, the sock stretches to its fullest capacity."
