Cereal box Magazine holder

Using empty cereal boxes I created some cute magazine holders.
These are so easy to make and they look great sitting on a shelf.

For this project you will need:
-A Large Cereal Box.
-2 12x12 sheets of decorative paper (2 for 1 box)
-Mod Podge

To make, first cut off the top of the cereal box, then using a ruler draw a line across the box (I left 3 inches on top and 4 1/4 on side) cut out. Use cut off piece as a template for the opposite side.
Trace Cereal box onto decorative paper, cut out then Mod Podge on. (use directions on container)
Note: Let an inch of the the paper hang over the edges of the box, this is so you can fold it over like a present on the bottom of the box, I used some of the left over paper and placed in the center, to fill in the gap.

I think they turned out really cute, but the problem with these ones is that they don't actually fit a magazine in them. I think the economy is making our cereal boxes shrink. 
 It does however fit bills really well.


  1. I noticed that cereal boxes are getting smaller, too! Those look pretty cute holding your bills.

  2. What a cute idea! I'm loving your Xmas gift ideas!

  3. Ok--LOVE this and am copying this!! What a great idea! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

  4. So brilliant! Fabric would probably work, too!


  5. what a great idea to up-cycle creating something useful and beautiful. yay! i think i'm going to try this one. i need more and you can't beet free!
