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!"

These are darling. The link in the post to the full tutorial doesn't seem to be right. I never would have thought to reuse cereal boxes for gift boxes. Does anyone know if the cardboard has been painted? Or is this just the way the boxes are made? Netting bows are fabulous.
