Make gift boxes from your trash! Take advantage of your brightly colored recyclables, and they'll be no need for gift wrap.
- Cereal box, or other clean food packaging
- Cutting mat or scrap wood cutting surface
- Ultility or craft knife (like a box cutter or X-acto blade)
- Straight edge
- Bone folder or large spoon
1. Find the glued joint of your box and use the knife to open it, so that the box lies flat as one piece of cardboard.
