In CRAFT Volume 09, I showed you how to transform cereal boxes into business card holders, magazine holders, and postcards. Since it’s UpCraft month at Craftzine, I decided to upcycle that idea to include a pencil case, too.
This pencil holder will make a great case for upcycling. When you’re done, don’t let this project keep you boxed in! Try coming up with your own cereal box upcycling project.

    Hello Tiffany.
    I’m a writer in the Spanish version of Make: Online ( and I just posted about my son’s school project. His English teacher taught them how to make a small wallet out of a milk or juice carton, and I wonder if maybe she got the idea from CRAFT. I’ll ask her next time I see her, but maybe you could tell me if you have posted about a template to make wallets…
    Thanks in advance for your answer!

    Hi Marisol -
    I have done a cereal box wallet template for Craft. You could apply the same template to a flattened milk carton.
    The cereal box link can be found in Craft’s print magazine, Volume 9 here –
    And you can also find a slightly different variation of it at RePlayGround here –
    Happy upcycling!
