Upcycle Cereal Boxes into Notebooks and Cute Boxes

The three R's of keeping your packaging life green are "reduce, reuse, recycle." Most people are pretty good at the recycle part. Reduce gets a C+ but as a lot we're pretty bad at reusing. I suspect it's because people like pretty things and a lot of times reused things just aren't pretty. Well make that excuse no more friends becuase Jillee from One Good Thing has four great projects that you can make with old cereal boxes. My personal favorite are the mini notebooks but the gift boxes and pencil boxes are pretty awesome, too!


  • Cereal boxes
  • Scissors
  • Spray adhesive
  • Paper
