Cereal Boxes

Make your cereal more thrift friendly by recycling the cereal boxes when they are empty.  Use them for structure when wrapping gifts.  Or use empty cereal boxes to store magazines.  Cut away the top third on the side of the box, and then cover the box with contact paper if desired.

- Turn cereal boxes inside out to make plain gift boxes.
- Use the cardboard to make gift cards.
- Use the cardboard to make small notebook covers.
- Cut them down as use them to organize items in drawers.
