Has anyone made a box from a cereal box? I have a Honey Bunches of Oats box that is the perfect size for a messanger-like bag. I think I just need to reinforce it before I line and decorate it. I had to remove a side in order for the purse to have an opening. Are there some materials that would work better to attach the flap and strap to the box? I was thinking contact paper/packing tape for it, but I am worried about it looking sloppy-cheap. Any tips on making this look classy? I plan on decorating it collage style with some fun things I've saved (fortunes, notes, playbills, photos, wrappers). All ideas are much appreciated. Thanks!

Interesting thread, but not quite what I was looking for. Thanks for the help though! Since I don't have a grommet kit, nor the time/money, I covered the box, inside and outside, in black gaff tape. I'm in the process of deciding what I want to collage on the sides, then I'm going to cover it with packing tape. Still not sure about a flap for the top to make it more like a messenger bag than a tote. Or for the strap. But this looks like it will be a project I take back to college with me. Good times ahead!
