‘CEREAL’ously

We recently have a nephew who is serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

We wanted to send him a care package to show him just how much we care!

What You Need:

Box

Scrapbook Paper

Ruler

Scissors

Glue stick

Large Box of Cheerios

Variety of Cereals

How to Make:

Start by measuring the flaps of your box. Cut your scrapbook paper to fit your box measurements.

Once your paper is cut out, use a glue stick to glue each page, to each box flap.

When all of your pages have been glued on, you are ready to add the wording.

I used my silhouette to cut out the saying. However, you could just use a pen too!

I then hand sketched a spoon and a bowl onto cardstock. Once they were cut out, I glued them to the flaps, along with the letters for my saying.

I decided to use a hot glue gun to add a few Cheerios to the spoon and bowl to make it look more realistic.

Next step, collect all of your cereals.

I purchased these at my local dollar store!

I loved that they were small bags of cereal, instead of miniature boxes.

So about halfway through this project, I had a bright idea…

I was going to fill the box with loose Cheerios!

So I grabbed my personal box of Cheerios out of the cupboard.

And filled the bottom of the box with a layer of Cheerios.

Hahaha… 😂

Next organize your bags of cereal inside your decorated box.

Before taping the box closed, fill the rest of the box will Cheerios.

I’m sure your loved one will thank you for the excess of Cheerios later! 😂

I really got a kick out of this box!

I’m not sure how much my nephew enjoyed opening a box full of loose Cheerios but I thought it was hilarious.

Yes… you read that right.

I filled the rest of the box with loose Cheerios, just like they were plastic peanuts.

Hahaha… 😂

Hopefully they weren’t crushed to a powder by the time it got to him. 🤞🏻

Happy crafting!

SONshine Box

No that’s not a typo… I really do know how to spell sunshine correctly.

This post is all about the Son!

As in Jesus Christ, the son of God.

I recently helped my mother make a care package for her oldest grandson, who is currently serving a mission for the Chirch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Since April is the month we celebrate Easter, we decided to make a sunny “Son”shine box!

I loved making this box! It is so cheery and full of beautiful reminders of the Saviors sacrifice for man.

If you too are far from a loved one or are in need of ideas for your own missionary, this box is perfect. It would even make a great Easter basket theme!
