I’m still going through my upcycling stage! I can’t bare to part with any packaging at the moment, so I’m using it all in my creations.
I wanted a file to store my Rub-Ons sheets so I decided to recycle a cereal box for my purpose.
To begin with I measured out the size I wanted the box file to be then cut it down using a craft knife. I applied masking tape over the entire outside of the box to give it some strength.
Next I used watered down glue and torn book pages to completely cover the box and then left it to air dry for a couple of days
I decorated it with layers of blue acrylic paints in various shades and stencils
I added a punch out circle and stamped the word “rub-ons” and glued it on the spine which you can see in the picture below
You’d never guess that it used to be a box of cereal from the pictures above would you?! I’m starting to look at cereal packets in a whole new light now! I’m never going to throw another one away again!
