Here are some nice, sturdy cardboard boxes. Together, we’re going to give them a second life before they end up in the recycling bin!
 
First, take one box and carefully open both ends completely. Then, simply take the box apart by pulling gently on the narrow flap that typically runs along one side of such boxes. 
 
 
And you end up with this: 
 
 
Now let’s rebuild the box, but inside-out! 
 
 
Fold the flap and corners flip-side, and use wide clear tape to hold it all together. 
 
 
Voilà! Very easy, economical and environmentally friendly!!!! 
 
 
You can use these boxes for gift wrapping or shipping light items.
 
After this, you will never look at your cereal or cookie boxes the same way…
