Craft Day - Cereal Box Tray

cereal box storage tray

This Cereal Box Tray really could not be any easier.  I threw mine together in less than 10 minutes, and love how more organized my kitchen counter looks now.  I'm thinking my vanity and bathrooms are all going to need one of these as well!

Repurposing cereal boxes is really all over the place and I am sure that I am not the first to do this.  I debated not even sharing this project, but to tell the truth it's simplicity is worth yet another post in the blogosphere!

All you have to do is cut off the face of a cereal box and cover it with what ever paper you like best.  The one tip I have is to leave some of the face of the box to be able to fold it over to give the sides of my tray extra support.  The picture below shows it better:

There you go, another easy peasy craft to try.  Let the kiddies make a few as well for all those odds and ends little toys that always get lost!
