How-to: Cereal Box Notepad

Supplies for notebook making In our household, cereal is a staple for breakfast, and let’s face it: lunch and dinner, too. With so many cereal boxes lying around, I wanted to come up with a simple and quick project to utilize all of that cardboard. These notepads are a breeze to whip up and make great stocking stuffers for that person who loves to make lists!

What you will need:

  • Cereal box
  • 50 sheets or so of recycled paper (old computer paper, scribble sheets, etc.)
  • Scissors
  • Piece of decorative paper from your stash
  • Mod Podge
  • Padding Compound
  • Paint brush
  • Binder clips

    I am a middle school art teacher. We use cereal boxes to make the forms for paper mache 3-D sculptures. We also recycle school supply catalogs from teacher mailboxes for strips (instead of using masking tape) to create the form. Click on link below to see the letter (initial) sculptures that we made.

    We use cereal boxes for painting. My 4yo can put as much paint as she wants on the cereal box and her project won’t get soggy like paper can. We also use our cereal boxes to make notebooks and post cards.
