    The Cardboard Box Office -

    When Lilly and Leon Mackie moved from New Zealand to Sydney, Australia, with their baby son, Orson, they found themselves with more cardboard boxes than they knew what do do with -- until, that is, they came up with the idea of using them to recreate famous scenes from movies with a little help from Orson. They post the photos on their blog and Facebook page and call the project "The Cardboard Box Office." 'Wah Wars' The Mackies present their take on "Star Wars."
