How do you make a gift bag out of a cereal box?
Cut a couple of lengths of ribbon, twine, cord or, my personal favorite, strips of jersey from a t-shirt (but make sure to cut it going across the t-shirt, not up it). And simply tie them onto the holes in the top of the box. And you’re done! But let’s say you don’t want a bag that’s as big as a whole cereal box.
