recycled gift box tutorial
thought i'd share this little idea i had for recycling cereal boxes, probably not the most unique, but crafty and green nonetheless!
a cereal box
a glue gun
first gently break down the box along the side and the bottom.
this is what it will look like. (yes, we shop at wal-mart, and that is my breakfast about 90% of the time...i'm boring)
turn inside out and bend all flaps to the inside to make them more pliable. then use your hot glue gun to attach the sides and bottom together.
then, tuck in the top like you normally would on a cereal box!
place your gift inside, wrap with wrapping paper, or simply decorate with a ribbon or yarn! easy peasy, and totally free! that's my kind of project!
tune in tomorrow for a jean skirt refashion! (for the sadester, of course)
***If you have used any of my tutorials, I'd love if you'd add a quick pic to my flicker group! Thanks!***
