DIY Stationary Organizer from an Oatmeal Cereal Box

Hello all! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! It was snowy, cold, snowy, windy, snowy and...snowy here. My Florida friends (you know who you are) keep telling (and showing, via skype) how lovely and warm and beautiful it is down there... Cruel.

There's my rant for the evening. BUT! THIS.... is me RAVING about how I now can't wait to buy oatmeal cereal for my 8 month old. Yep! I'm really anxious. Want to know why??? Well... Because you can turn THIS...

into.... THIS!

 Yes!!! It really is one oatmeal cereal box!!! You don't believe me do you...

Nope... you don't.

 How about now???

You better believe it! Isn't it amazing!? I'm going to put my incoming and outgoing mail/bills to pay in it. It will be awesome. 
I can't take credit for this amazing idea, though. I got it from Pinterest (LOVE Pinterest). 
And Pinterest got it from Katydid and Kid. <-- click for tutorial.

You will see that I tweaked it a little to fit what I had and my style, but she has an awesome tutorial to get the gist of it. Customize away! When you join my site (which I know you will... teehee), Follow Katydid and Kid as well! 
Hope you get inspired!



  1. Just in case you were wondering, the measurements are different on mine then they were on Katydid and Kid's. I had a different sized box. Also, I used twine or "jute" around mine. Let me know if you have any questions!

  2. It came out so lovely! I'm guessing there's much more cereal in your future, which of course means more organizers!

    Thanks for sharing your creation!
