This is my take on something I saw on Pinterest. I wish I could visit the site so I can give credit to the person who posted this originally, but it comes from an invite-only blog. Thank you schneiderbucket.blogspot.com.

I wanted something to sit on my desk that was a little bigger so I used two cereal boxes; a 14oz. Cheerios and a 12oz. Honey Oats...
|I started by flattening them out to make it easier to cut using a cutter as opposed to scissors. I wanted a nice straight edge.|
|I cut off the lid and about a 1/4 inch more on the larger cereal box.|
| Cut the smaller box into two smaller boxes by cutting a 4inch section. This will give you about 7 inches for the second box. |
In this picture you can see that I cut off the lid, but don't do that. I wasn't sure where I was going when I did that.
|Re-glue the bottom of your two larger boxes and the top of your smaller box. The top of the smallest box will be the bottom from now on.|
|Tape the bottoms for reinforcement using a strong tape. I used painter's tape because it holds up really well, and if you need to lift it up, it doesn't ruin what you're working on.|
|Use hot glue between the boxes and again reinforce using tape. I taped the bottom...|
|And the top of the smallest box. Now you're done with the box.|
|I did cut a 1/4 in. off the tallest box in the front with a little angle. It was an after thought, and I added the ribbon to hide the imperfections in my new design.|
|I'm not sure if you can tell, but I ran out of the zebra print, so I just started patchng up the holes with other scraps here and there. |
