Cereal Box turned Vintage Rose Decor!

This week I was blessed with groceries.
Mini cereal boxes were part of the package...
you know I could not let them go to waste!
 I used hot glue to secure the top of the box and then I covered the box in paper. 
(Wrapped it just like a present.)
I found a label from the graphics fairy
 Of course I used lots of misc doo dads to fluff up the top!
 I also fluffed up a baby food jar to match the box, it is in my laundry room making money as I do laundry! Giggle!
Ok, probably a little over the top when you start shabbying cereal boxes!
Listen, I am a mommy on a budget!
These little cereal boxes were too cute to toss!
I will be sharing this with
Have a lovely day!
Squishy Hugs,


  1. Great way to use what you have!!! It's adorable!!!

  2. What a sweet idea Olivia! It is so cute!!! I would never have guessed it was an upcycled cereal box:)

  3. That's fun! I use them flat!
    Hugs- Tete

  4. Love it! Lord if I could I would shabby up the cat, a cereal box is nothing!!


  5. The cutest idea! how creative you are.. I just became a follower..

  6. Olivia, I think its wonderful you shabbied up your ceral boxes. Any time something can be re-purposed vs going in the garbage is a good thing!!! It is beautiful!! By the way, I have gone over the top with cigar boxes. I finished another one this evening and will post it tomorrow evening. Have a good week my sweet friend!

  7. This is recycling to the best!! I may try it.....
    Have a Great Day!

  8. Hello Olivia! I wanted to stop by and say "thank you" for visiting my blog! I just love your shabby chic style! You even made a cereal box look adorable!!

  9. Oh Olivia, that is too cute for words! I thought I was the only one that hated to throw away those cute little boxes! (although I never figured out what to do with them...your idea is adorable!)
    Glad you liked my laundry room's going to be SO cute, I can't wait! :)

  10. Olivia, I have always thought those little cereal boxes were too cute to throw out and yet, I did! I will have to rethink that next time. Yours is just adorable! Good job!


  11. Very pretty. Just shows you can make something lovely out of about anything. Great job. Thanks for sharing your loveliness. Karie

  12. How cute is that!!! thanks for sharing, Marcia

  13. Those are really cute! They'd make some good packaging for a gift card present or something small.. maybe for Mothers Day!

    Also, you won an award!

  14. May I say that "shabbying" your little ceral boxes is a lovely idea of using something most of us throw out and just clutter landfills etc etc. You, however, have taken it and made beauty from it and for that I deeply admire your creativity. Since my husband and I are on a retirement budget and since I retired early, I must start to rethink ideas such as these. Thank you for your inspirational post today. Happy PS a little late.

  15. Great idea and such flair! Love it!!!

    Thanks so much for your kind words about my blog - they mean a lot.

    Happy Mother's Day!

  16. Only another blogger could appreciate this post, Olivia!! Shabby-ing up mini cereal boxes is a terrific idea!! You are such a clever gal. I love how yours turned out.

    I'm catching up today on some of your past posts, and just realized that you say you are having some surgery soon. I'll say special prayers for you, dear friend. Take good care of yourself and I hope you will have a very speedy recovery!

    Love & Prayers,
    Angelic Accents

  17. I just found your blog for the first time and I'm having fun seeing all your wonderful makeovers and creativity! A cereal box shabbified is hilarious! :)


Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
