Cereal Box Made Into Small Sewing Kit {#FreeFromTrash}

I was originally not going to come up with an upcycled craft for a cereal box because we don't buy cereal. Instead, we usually eat oatmeal, either rolled oats or steel cut oats, but 2 weeks ago, I was preparing to pack to go to Pennsylvania and Indiana, so I decided to buy my daughter some Cheerios.

Today, I had no idea what I was going to do with the box, other than putting it in the recycling bin, until I thought of making a sewing kit.  Supplies needed:

  • Thread
  • Scissors 
  • Cereal Box
  • Needles
1. Cut a 3 1/2 inch X 2 inch rectangle.

2. Get an assortment of different thread colors and cut them to desired length.  Wrap around the rectangle.

3. Place pin between the thread and put in a container, such as a baby food jar.

What uses for cereal boxes have you come up with?
