Cereal Box and Fruit Net Upcycled Gift Boxes
From the blogger: "Don’t spend money on wasteful gift boxes when you can make them yourself from free upcycled materials! Just grab a cereal box and some plastic produce nets to make a unique and eco-friendly gift box! Cut and fold the cereal box to create a box with a fitted lid, then cut up different types of fruit nets to create trims to keep the box closed, but also colorfully decorated! These boxes are totally unique and totally free! And gift recipients are always surprised to see the cereal box graphics on the inside!"
