If you’re like our family….you go through A LOT of cereal boxes. The funny thing is…we rarely eat cereal for BREAKFAST…it’s more of a snack item around here. Especially at night when I have announced that “the kitchen is closed” (ie. “you are on your own if you want anything more to eat tonight”). When left on their own like that, pouring a bowl of cereal is about all the menfolk around here seem inclined to do. (Tell me I’m not alone here!)
Subsequently we go through a lot of cereal and cereal boxes. I’ve never been able to figure out a good way to reuse them….until now.
I stumbled on a few cute ways to give new life to those old cereal boxes and HAD to try them out!
The mini pocket notebooks are my fav, but I also love the simply cute boxes….and the funky pencil cases!
These would make fun little gifts or gift packaging for the holidays!
I tried my best to take pictures of the process of making each one…but I’m afraid my A.D.D. got the better of me and I missed several steps along the way. Good thing there are excellent tutorials for all three already out there! :-)
I have linked each one to the website I found them at for reference.

I love turning “trash” into “treasure”! Just check out the BEFORE and AFTER! Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. :-)
