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.


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


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!
