I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

My husband and I eat a lot of cereal. Instead of just throwing out the boxes with the recycling, I decided to make these super cute organizers for the latest edition of Craftster Quickies. They are SO easy to make!

I love the menu one. It has helped out so much!

Check out the video!

These are SO cute!  I love the idea of attaching magnets to them, too.

Do more of what makes you happy.

Those are FAB! You know what I would use them for? The kid's magazines. They end up all over the place, under beds, between the couch cushions, totally trashed and then they get sad. We'll collect our boxes to make these for their rooms, thanks Pam!

I love all the colors and patterns you used

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

These are a great way to organize! And a great way to use up some scrapbook paper stash!

These came out very nice and are a great way to repurpose stuff that most people would either throw away and/or recycle.  I like the colors/graphics on the center menu one the best and the bird graphic one on the left is a close second.  One of my nieces made something similar as a gift for my Mother several months back (she just painted hers though)--Mum keeps socks in them I think.

I eat a lot of boxed cereal too and save the cardboard, but it mostly only gets cut up and used as components for fabricating figures/models.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Great idea! I think my girls and I will make a few to hold pen pal letters. Thanks!

Finally!  Something to do with my old cereal boxes that can also keep all that paper from cluttering up.  Though to be fair, I do everything paperless now with the exception of magazines and junk mail which is immediately thrown out.
