I don't know about you, but in my house we go through a LOT of cereal. Breakfasts, snacks, late-night munchies, fuel for our DIY San Diego carpentry projects -- what can I say? We love our cereal!

What I don't love, however, is tossing that box multiple times every month. And yes of course, I recycle it, but still. I got to thinking, there must be something better I can do to upcycle all these colorful boxes! And guess what?

Oh boy, is there ever! Like:

1. Make a pretty gift box.

2. Make an adorable gift bag.

3. Make funky customized gift tags, luggage tags, or bookmarks. Check this page out for tons of inspiration.

4. Create a functional shipping envelope.

5. Fold a fun wallet.

6. Make a mini pocket notebook.

7. Or a lovely little note pad.

8. Maybe not for everyone, but it you're in a creative or artistic professional field, you can hand-craft business cards our of colorful cereal boxes. It's very green of you, too! For bonus points, if you're a landscaper, consider making a seed business card.

9. Also post cards.

10. This pencil case tutorial is absolutely adorable.

11. You can use cereal boxes as drawer organizers.

12. Or as a self-contained miniature cereal box storage unit.

13. You can sort your mail.

14. Or make an expandable file folder.

15. For something more playful, why not a cereal box puzzle?

16. Or, this awesome Quatrefoil lantern lookalike.

17. Or an abacus! This one also uses bread bag tabs, for a double dose of upcycling fun.

18. You can completely organize your purse.

19. And make a decorative tray.

20. You can make a folder holder or magazine holder.

21. And finally, you can make an adorable little iPhone holder.

Alright, that's all I got. If you have any awesome ideas, please share them in the comments below!
