I love eco-friendly crafts in which I can upcycle objects that would normally go in the trash. In my household, we go through a lot of cereal, so to make use of some of those boxes, I am turning old cereal boxes into picture frames. You can really use any boxes, like Girl Scout Cookie boxes, dog biscuit boxes, even detergent boxes. And this is a fun project for the kids, too!
What you’ll need:
Empty cereal box
Spray adhesive or glue stick
Hot glue gun
Step 2: Apply spray adhesive to the plain side of the box and adhere a piece of wrapping paper to it. Spray adhesive spreads an even coating of glue, but it is messy and needs to be used in a well-ventilated space. A glue stick is a good alternative, especially if you’re doing this project with kids. I actually like using my Xyron Creative Station. You put what you want to make sticky into the machine, crank the handle, and a layer of adhesive is applied to one of the sides. No mess and so easy.
Step 3: Using a hobby knife and straight edge, trim the excess paper, along with the edges of the cereal box that may have been cut unevenly with the scissors. Be careful with the hobby knife, and keep it away from children.
Here is my video on how to make them:
