Upcycled Cereal Box: Journals

Posted on Updated on

If you read our post from yesterday, you’ll know that I was knee-deep in helping hands. With school just around the corner, we thought that these diy journals would be fun to make.

The girls cut the boxes

They traced and cut construction paper

for the inside of the journals.

Then, they sewed buttons on the front.

We deviated from the original plan

in that we tied yarn around the button

instead of sewing directly with the yarn.

Here is Twinkle Toes showing off her button and yarn.

Sewing the inside seam is a task not

for the faint of heart,

or fingers.

We used various decorative tape

and stamps on the outside.

Here’s the one we made for their

precious mother.

Overall, a fun project

with really great company.
