Another Cool Use for Cereal Boxes

Take out Gift Box

This truffle box was our thank you token to the kids’ Sunday School Teachers this year. The day I planned on making the truffles, we were snowed in and unable to get to the store for containers.   A Google search produced this nifty template from Mirkwood Designs, and we thought cereal boxes would be cute.  I reuse the bounty of cereal boxes our family plows through in place of newspaper for art projects, as magazine organizers, and now, as gift boxes.

Template

One deconstructed cereal box holds 4 templates. We used scissors to cut along the outside shape and an exacto knife to score as needed.

Truffles

Ty was my truffle maker.   I helped minimally.  He did a great job!

Truffle Boxes

Each box held 4 truffles.  We tied on a painted Christmas bulb along with a note from the kids.

Cereal Gift Boxes

These would also make nice Valentines;  filled with small soaps, chocolates, or toys.  Enjoy!
