cheerios to recycle

My Creation

Still don't know what to do with the empty cereal boxes that you keep in your cabinet? My advise is to recycle. I finely took the step and got a beautiful black&white paper and moved on to my favorite projects - recycled craft. I say, it's time for a little cosmetic surgery!

I have a nice collection of paper boxes from cereals and different snacks in one of my drawers. I just feel bad about throwing it away... the material is just too good. I picked a cheerios box (my favorite breakfast, when eggs & bacon are out, hehe) - just too perfect for a magazine box. The tools you need are pencil, ruler, cutting knife, scissors, scotch tape, adhesive roller, and beautiful cover paper of your choice. For the tags circle cutter, white cardboard - I use a piece from bed laundry packaging, black ink-pen, and Loctite fun-tak (mounting putty) to attached it to the box - easier to switch the tags if u want to change the content of the box.

These look great - I used to do the same with the big soap powder boxes and still have some I made years ago. Well done.

They look great. Reminds me of covering school books with wallpaper to help protect the covers.
