Steps You Need To Follow To Make A DIY Cereal Box Craft
Let’s start with the cereal box. Take the cereal box and open the bottom of the box using a cutter. Also, open one side of the cereal box and this way, the entire cereal box will open up. Using the cutter cut the 2 squares from the side and the extra portion. Take a cardboard sheet and take measurements of 2 inches and cut a 2-inch long strip. Stick this 2-inch strip to the cereal box on one side using packing tape.
With this extra layer, you will be able to close the box properly. To prepare the inner cover of the box, apply glue on all the sides of the open box and in the center. Spread the glue using a piece of cardboard and stick a color sheet in the open box. Using a tissue paper, stick the color sheet to the box and let it get dry. Cut the extra color paper using a cutter or scissors.

Once the inner covering is done, we will prepare the outer layer for the cereal box. Take a dark pink color paper and apply glue to the entire paper. Stick the paper on the other side of the cereal box and stick the paper thoroughly. Cut the extra color sheet using a cutter and remove it. Keep the pink paper 0.5 inches broader than the actual size to frame the cereal box perfectly. This way, you will get an open cereal box with one side covered with light pink paper and other side covered with dark pink paper.
To make the box more decorative, use a printed paper sheet. Stick this printed sheet on the front side of the cereal box and similarly, use another printed sheet to cover the back of the box. Now, it’s time to seal and fold the entire box. Thus, apply glue on the upper and lower bends of the box and fold the box. Let the glue stick properly while you press the box. Give a proper finishing touch to the box by folding all the small extra portions.
