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!
