I must admit, I like a good bowl of cereal for breakfast from time to time. Yes, even the sugary cereals. (Sorry, mom!) When the flakes, clusters and marshmallows are gone, it seems a shame to just pitch the box. Now, with all of these crafty ideas from Pinterest, I can recycle them in other ways. Take a look at my finds and learn how cereal box projects can add a little snap, crackle and pop to your decor.

Put the colors and cool designs of cereal boxes front and center by turning them into notebook covers like Infarrantly Creative did here. Suddenly jotting down to-do lists and taking phone messages seems a lot more fun, doesn’t it?
