Tour Eiffel

Along with my paintings, I have finished my cardboard model of the Eiffel Tower. It's pretty simple. I'm hoping my teacher appreciates simple. (Few seem to at this school.) I know seeing it with the things other students made makes it look like I didn't put much work into it, but I like how it came out. It's simple and light and not too much. I didn't want to go over the top with it and keep adding and adding until it was too decorated. So I hope my teacher gets that. I sort of turned out like an art deco version of the tower, which is cool. Art deco is always good.

Anyways, here it is. Took less than a small sheet of cardboard to make. But I'm happy with it.

Best compliment was someone said this looked like something you could pick up at the Umbra store. That's awesome. I love Umbra.


  1. Hi, I found this great construction of the Eiffel Tower with Lego Duplo bricks. The construction is a room high and the children love it!
    Making this tower is fun and good for the motoric skills for the youngsters. Have fun!

  2. Hello,

    I am reaching out on behalf of a new museum in Chicago, called Blocks to Bricks and we are interested in showcasing your cardboard Eiffel Tower.
    Please contact me at to discuss.
