Turn Packaging into Mailers

This little symbol is on one of the boxes that I turned into a mailer. Inspired by this article about turning cereal boxes into mailers.

My sewing machine is acting up, so I've stapled or taped the edges of these cereal boxes instead of sewing them shut. You aren't just limited to cereal boxes, think of all the snack, cracker, and other food boxes in your kitchen! It's a great way to re-use these boxes and make some creative mailers.

The only problem with staples is they can be very sharp, so I recommend putting tape or gluing paper over them.

I love how these turned out! If you don't like the look of the packaging on the inside, you could always tape or glue wrapping paper or fabric on the inside.
