I am not sure if any of you saw the new Cheerios boxes that have little hash marks showing you how to cut the box to make a little post card. Well if you missed it no big deal. It was a clever way to use the box but wasn’t anything that exciting. I did however cut it out and send it to my friend Emily. Yes it is something random to get in the mail but I have never met anyone who was mad about getting mail from friends, even if it was an old cereal box.
Well that little bit of Cheerios inspired me. I decided to cut the entire box up and make my own postcards. I am all about reduce, reuse, recycle but this took it to a whole new level. I was able to use 90% of the box and they are cute little custom postcards.
After I cut the box apart and had my 6 postcards I busted out of course, the washi tape!!! My best friend! It took me maybe 30 minutes to make all 6 and I cannot stop petting them. I am in love. It is my new favorite thing. I plan on making them from all of our old cereal boxes.
