Recycled Cardboard Tote

Recycled Cereal Box Tote

Isn't this fun?! So I took an empty Cereal Box (obviously lol) and cut the top flaps off.

Then I used a large hole punch to cut holes in the box for handles.

Last step I did was make a crease in the sides. don't have to leave it just like could decoupage scrapbook paper pieces with mod podge, or cover it in patterned duct tape.  You have a ton of options.

You could also skip the step where I cut in the handles, and you could use a small hole punch on the sides and put ribbon through it, knot it on the inside, and use it for a handle.

This would also make a neat bag to put a present in.  It's a conversation piece and you got it for free!

Happy Crafting!


  1. I wasnt as excited until you suggested adding scrap book paper or duct tape! I guess I didnt like the cereal box look but its an awesome base!
