Cereal Box Crafts

I made these little gems a few weeks ago.  Not only were they really easy to make, they are super functional!

Awhile back I had purchased a big thing of all the little individual cereals. I saved several of them, knowing I could use them somehow. 
So here's what I came up with...

 Grab some fun paper, mini cereal boxes,  mod podge (or paper glue of somekind), embellishments, magnets & letters of some kind

Cut the top of the box off.  Trim a piece of paper to fit.
And glue it onto your box

Notice I had help!

This is the back of the box.  Since you won't ever see it, it doesn't matter if your paper doesn't completely cover it.

I cut up the remaining scraps to embellish each box a little

Then using my Cricut, I cut out my (vinyl) letters & applied them to green paper.
Mod podge the paper to the front of the box, then add other extra's if you want.  I chose buttons & gemstones

Take a magnet (I had a roll of adhesive magnet paper for my cricut that I used, but you could use any kind, just make sure they'll be strong enough to stay up) and apply it to the back of your box. Now you're DONE!

Ta-Da! Sorry I didn't take a pic of them all filled up!  But they are the perfect size for cut up coupons (which i'm trying to start using... if you have any tips, I'd LOVE them!), pens you have laying around & scrap paper! 
You could use these handy little boxes for literally anything! I love them!
Let me know if you make any, i'd LOVE to see them!

Yesterday morning, after putting Harli out and me starting to work on Landry's lunch, I heard the sound of boots running, the back door opening & slamming.

This is what I found.

Do you notice how he rides with no hands? Safe, right?

Getting stuck

My poor child always looks homeless. *Do you see the new boots? He's so proud of them!

Yesterday was also the Transportation Parade at Landry's "school"
-which was a joke-

It was windy & chilly and only a few kids out of each class even really participated
But I did love the pink cadillac!

And the hot air balloon

And the space ship

After Landry's class decided to get up from naps, thet finally came outside.
They were supposed to be a train.  So all they did was say "choo, choo"

At least they're cute!

Kaleb was desperate to hold Ansley last nite, as you can tell, she didn't mind that too much!

Seeing as how we still don't have a decent picture of all the kids, we tried again.
Epic fail....again

This is as good as it got!

Mom & me cut Landry's hair today, so he had his shirt off.  So when it came time to leave, he did NOT want to put his clothes back on.  He picked his own clothes out of the drawer and this is what he came up with.

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!!
