A cereal box isn't really just a breakfast cereal box. When you have a mere modicum of imagination for your use, you can do a lot of things. Here are just a few of the uses for breakfast cereal boxes, from storage containers to craft projects and toys. Article resource: Discovering new uses for cereal boxes
Write things down on it
Any kids who want a special notebook can make a new notebook with the breakfast cereal box. All you need is some decoupage adhesive, an X-ACTO knife, binder clips and loose leaf paper.
A gift box can come
With some colored paper, ribbons, bows and whatever else you can affix with glue, a breakfast cereal box can become a gift box. Not only can recipients marvel at your creativity, they can use them to re-gift.
Another related idea for the breakfast cereal box is to punch holes into it and create tags for packages. All you need is some ribbon, and you also can get the tag attached to the gift.
Making a bookmark out of it
With your handy X-ACTO knife, cut rectangles out and glue them together, unprinted side facing out. You have a plain bookmark. If you need to decorate it with pens and markers, knock yourself out. It's fast and simple.
Hold your magazines
You can just as very easily produce a magazine holder with your cereal box. It is the ideal size, and it is really easy. You can decorate it however you need after cutting the top and one side off. It will be perfect for your magazine needs.
Using a full side from your breakfast cereal box, spray paint it white on both sides. Once dry, the place mat could be decorated with markers. After the decorating is done, get the place mats laminated. Kids will love this activity.
Putting on a mask show
You may want to just create masks with the children. It is ideal material for producing masks that can shape to your face but will hold up, and you can use glue to put anything on the masks that you would like. Just use some string to attach the masks to your face, and you also can have personalized masks.
If you do not need a sturdy box to keep your eBay auction sales secure, use a breakfast cereal box rather than buying a box. WiseBread suggests turning the box inside out and then gluing the seams back together. So long as there's no extraneous writing visible, simply address the package; tape it up, stamp it and you're ready to ship.
Do your quirky business
You might end up getting a sale if you have a quirky business and put the effort into making amazing business cards. Just write on the plain side of the business card and laminate it.
More card uses
With the material of a breakfast cereal box, creating cards of any kind is pretty simple. You can make flash cards, post cards and much more.
Friendly with food
Cardboard is food safe, right? Remember, there used to be cereal in the box, or at least a plastic bag that contained cereal. Why not paste the two large faces of a breakfast cereal box together, two-ply style. You have a disposable cutting board. If you are not using an overly clear knife, you may even be able to get away with one-ply. Then you have two cutting boards!
