Friday Favorites – food box flair

How to add flair using food boxes

To be honest, today’s favorite is fairly new. As in, I only started it last week.


But once the idea hit me, I couldn’t quit thinking of things to do with it. Because of the versatility and the potential for fun, I see it being a favorite, so I’m going to go ahead and share it with you.

I bought this box of cereal for my kids to eat the day that my husband and I went to see the new Star Wars movie. We made a big deal of them staying home with a sitter, so they got special SW-themed cereal and snacks.


I love the Yoda on this box. You may not be able to tell, but the detail is actually really good for a cereal box. Once the cereal had all been eaten, we put the box beside the trash can, too large to fit inside. I was staring at it when it hit me.

“I’ll cut him out!”


And from there, I just kept finding things to cut out.


I was also really excited to find the Hungry Jack box since I know someone named Jackson. Then I started thinking about all the things that use that name… Cracker Jack, Apple Jacks, Jack Daniel’s.


I don’t know why I never thought to use food boxes before. They’re thick and sturdy cardboard, and as long as I use the proper adhesive, there shouldn’t be a problem going through the mail machines.

So what do you think? Is this something you’d try?
