Cereal box turned lunch box, or little girl purse, or whatever

We went to the park with some friends, and packed our lunches in these clever tote-boxes from Family Fun. As with everything I put on here, it was over-the-top easy. Just cut the flaps off, I tore them off. And cut out some handles...I used a box cutter. The one at Family Fun was modge-podged all over for a more decorative look. I just glued a piece of paper that each kid decorated themselves to the front.

Project rating:

Supplies--minimal, on hand


Mess factor--few scraps of cardboard

Fun factor--too fast to be fun, but we got a lot of compliments on them at the park

Sidenotes/learned by experience--cut the handles at least 2 or 3 inches down from the top, and don't make them too wide, otherwise they tear out easily.

Hi there! Just stopping by from your comment on Simply Lapbooks. We did just print out the images from the KidzWonder magazine. My daughter had her ideas of how she wanted to lay out her lapbook so we went with her thoughts. I wasn't originally going to add as much as she did to the lapbook from the magazine. :0) (I thought I'd post my answer here in case you don't go back to the comment section in my blogs.)
