Another use for cereal boxes

Cut the top flaps off neatly to make a nice edge and then cover with pretty wrapping paper, wall paper scraps or brown paper and then decorate and add ribbon or twine or bead string for handles. They make nice sturdy gift bags/boxes. Graham cracker boxes are nice for this.
The waxed bag that the cereal is in can be reused too. If you craft a lot it makes a nice surface to lay painted items on to dry or to protect a surface when using glue. Things don't stick to the waxy surface.
