I was presented with a Dollar store craft challenge and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I began with inspiration from HERE which was just paper folded into a box to look something similar to this.
I wanted more strength so my project began with an old cereal box.
I cut a window out of the front of the cereal box.
Then I covered the outside of the box with pretty scrapbooking paper.
Next came some paper embellishments.
Add to this more paper embellishments and some Dollar Store Stationery.
Take a look at the finished cereal box. Total cost $5 for the different Dollar Store items. I already had the scrapbooking paper and rick-rack on hand and no cost of the empty cereal box. What a fun gift to give a teenage girl!
