Cereal Box Greetings with Cricut

As you are well aware, I LOVE my Cricut. I also love a good challenge. So when I heard about a Cricut challenge where each month you use a different material and your Cricut to create something magical, I was IN! In January, the material was felt. Well…errr…my felt project didn’t go as planned. Happens. Crafter fail. But here we are in February and the material is…a cereal box. I decided to update one of my former Cricut greeting card projects that I love. You can access that project here if you want to follow along.

What you will need:

  • Cricut Explore Air
  • Cricut Design Space
  • Your choice of paper. Two different styles
  • Cereal Box (Can you guess which one I am using?)
  • Glue (I prefer the Tombow Dual Tip Glue Pen) or adhesive of choice
  • Stickers (optional)
  • Embellishments (optional)

Once you access the project in Cricut Design Space, Click the “Make It” button and follow the prompts on the screen and Cricut.

I love mixing funky paper together. It really gives projects a fun and unique feel. This paper I used for the folded part of the card is from a paper pack sold at JoAnn Fabrics.

For the challenge, the material for this month is a cereal box. I used this Vanilla Almond Granola Cereal by Trader Joe’s. I used the cereal box to be the material that the squares are cut out of.

Of course, I still have to add a pink element. This bright pink card stock will go behind the squares. Once all of the materials are cut then you will have to adhere them together. I used the Tombow Dual Tip Pen for this. First glue the cereal box to the pink paper. Then glue the pink paper to the front side of the folded card.

I used my She Reads Truth Bible to place over my card while it was drying. Once the card is dry you can add embellishments and stickers. I added the “Hello” sticker, pink glitter flower and paper flower to give the card more color and layering. The stickers were from last easter season’s Target $1 Spot and the yellow paper flower was from a ephemera pack I picked up at JoAnn Fabrics.

The final card looks so pretty and fun. What do you think? Can you even tell that I used a cereal box? Ha! Be sure to let me know if you try this tutorial.
