Made from the side of a Twinkie box and a sheet of paper cut into 16ths. I've been working on a list for my blog of things that can be done with a cereal box, and this is one of my favorite quickie projects so I made this as an example.
My tween loves these so much.
Thanks for looking!

Very nice - and a great jumping off point for other ideas.  Thanks for the inspiration!

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

As soon as I saw this, I jumped up and dug out the empty Zebra Cakes box from the trash can...very cool stuff on that box. I wonder what else I have in there??

So, I might actually make one or two in the next couple of days...

Thanks for the idea!

Well, I was too tired tonight to do anything that required too much thinking, so I made two of these. They were so easy and quick! Just what I needed- an instant gratification craft!! I'll definitely be making more of these. And, I'm going to grab a stack of recycled paper off of my desk at work and use that for the inside pages.

The Zebra Cakes one was first, and then I made the Fiddle Faddle one second. I think I need to plan the layout a bit better (although the Fiddle Faddle one was a bit better). Guess I'll have to eat more junky snack foods!!

MEshelltakeone- I'll get links added in the next day or two. Smiley I didn't even think of it at the time.

KarenLouiseM- Thank you, and you're welcome. I'm looking forward to seeing your ideas!

craftADDchick- *grins* they are instant gratification aren't they? I like the way yours turned out. I made a few more.


The Emily the Strange one is a clothing tag, just folded in half with paper stapled into one side, and a strip of elastic to hold it closed, the bear one is a tag from a charity heart at Build-a-Bear.

That is an excellent idea!!  I know people who would love those.  It would be a great idea to use the papers from beer cartons and things as well.
