Homemade Recycled Cereal Box Gift Bags

Recycle a food or cereal box into a pretty gift bag. Wrap in a paper of your choice and add ribbon or other types of handles. They are sturdier than a purchased bag and you can feed good about recycling. This page contains instructions for homemade recycled cereal box gift bags.

If you don't have the right size gift bag on hand, create your own by recycling a box. These are much sturdier than gift bags and can be used over and over again.

Approximate Time: About 20 minutes



Trim the top flaps from your box. Wrap the box with gift wrap as you would a gift, leaving about two inches of paper at the open end of the box. Fold the excess paper to the inside of the box and tape to secure.

For the handles, punch two holes on opposite sides of box, thread ribbon through the holes and knot the ends.

You can even create a gift tag from leftover wrapping paper. Fold a piece of the paper in half, punch a hole in the corner, and thread it onto one of the ribbons before threading the ribbon through the hole.
