Hey friends! This post is part of a monthly Create With Cricut Challenge 2018 that I am a part of. Each month from here until December I’ll be sharing a project from the themed challenge. This month we were given the challenge to create something using a cereal box! I decided to make some vinyl storage (see below!)

I’m so excited to share this little project with you! There is nothing I love more than turning trash into treasure and that is just what I did for this month’s challenge project! I used a large cereal box (because we don’t do normal sized with our large family!) to create an awesome storage box for my metallic vinyl. I have a huge supply of vinyl and this is just a quick and cheap way to organize it in a pretty way! Here’s what I did:
CEREAL BOX TO VINYL STORAGE:
- Large Cereal box
- Duct Tape
- Paint (I used DecoArt Metallic Silver)
- Paint brush
- Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine
- Washi Sheet
- Black Vinyl
- Transfer Tape
Prep and Paint Box:
The first step is to prep your box for painting by taping down the top flaps inside the box. This will add stability and give the open top you need.
Next, paint your box. This may take a couple layers. Remember that painting in thin layers is best for a smooth finish.
Design Label and Text:
Design your label in Cricut Design Space™. I actually just searched images for a label since I just wanted a simple one.
Arrange the label on the cutting mat in your software.
Select which material you will be cutting. I used Washi Sheets which are so pretty and easy to use! They go on just like a sticker.
Go ahead and cut your label out. I used my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine which I absolutely love.
Next, design your text in Cricut Design Space™. I used the Cricut Access Fonts and created this one.
I then cut it out in black vinyl on my Cricut Explore Air 2 and weeded the excess out. Now the letters are ready to transfer using Transfer Tape.
Now it’s time to put it all together!
First, place the washi sheet label on the front of your box.
Next, use Cricut transfer tape to put the letters onto the box. (There are many tutorials online if you don’t know how to do this.)
You’re done! Now just load your excess vinyl rolls into your new storage box! Easy peasy and looks so cute!
Thanks for reading. I hope you liked this tutorial! Join me again next month for the next Create with Cricut Challenge! In the meantime check out all the other AMAZING cereal box projects done by the other challenge participants!
