What You Will Need:
Step By Step:
1 - Disassemble your cereal box making sure not to rip the box.
2 - Lay your box flat so you're looking at the printed side of the box.
4 - Cut off the two small flaps on the end.
9 - Add your shipping label and postage to the front.
Voila!!! You've just created a shipping envelope for practically no cost at all in about 2 minutes. How awesome is that!?!? I've already created a ton of these and set them aside for the next time I ship something out. Next time I'll wait till the cereal is gone. I got some pretty odd looks when my husband when to get some cereal and saw a whole bunch of cereal bags with no boxes. Hehe!
*This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) hosted by Calley, The Eco Chic, and is part of a one month challenge to create from trash. This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.
