Cereal boxes are well sized for holding magazines, comic books, and school supplies. To make a case, cut the top from a box at an angle, then wrap the box with decorative paper and double-sided tape.
Junk drawer looking especially junky? Corral all that stuff in cardboard compartments. Trim the bottom 2 1/4 inches from several cereal boxes. Paint the insides, then use the trays to organize a drawer.
Make this toy-car racetrack with just a few simple cuts. Add sections from other boxes for longer tracks. Embellish with duct tape, then glue on card-stock- and-pipe-cleaner flames.
How to make it: From the front and back of a cereal box, cut and remove a rectangle that's 2 inches in from each edge. Make a diagonal cut at each corner, and flatten the strip for the road.
Turn bright, cartoony boxes into postcards by cutting panels from them.
