We had another successful craft day with my girlfriends yesterday! My friend LeeAnn brought over lots of crafting ideas which I never thought we would have time to do but she works SO FAST and got them done. I barely could keep up taking pictures for the blog. One of the easiest and fastest projects we made was this cereal box upcycled into a magnetic paper bin for your fridge. SO SO SO Easy.
Materials: Cereal Box, 2 sheets Scrapbook paper, scissors, glue
At first I was looking online to figure out the perfect dimensions and seeing if there was a tutorial anywhere. LeeAnn was laughing , and telling me “it is easy, you just cut a cereal box into the shape you want… you dont need a tutorial”. She was rightI I watched her cut one out in 30 seconds then I made her cut another one slowly so I could take pictures to share with you.
Step One: Cut the cereal box into the shape you want. Like I said above, just wing it.
Step Two- Trace and then cut the scrapbooking paper to match the size of the box (pictured below)
Step Three- Glue the paper onto the surfaces of the cereal box
Step Four- Add Magnets to the back. If you do not have these then I have seen people use magnetic clips (that can be used for chips etc) but they do not hold a lot of weight.
That is it, all finished! It was super fast and easy. Meanwhile……. in the yard
