Upcycling: cheese box to gift box

Have you ever had Laughing Cow Cheese?

The cheese wedges come in a round cardboard container.


With a little embellishment, the container makes a perfect gift box.

To cover this box, I gently removed the labels from the top and sides of the box. I covered the top and sides of the container in a lightweight cardstock. I used a little ric rac to hide the seam along the top edge.

You can leave the box plain or add more embellishments on the top.
A silk flower.

Easter eggs.
 
An Easter Bunny.

Or, a little bouquet of twigs and flowers.

Fill the box with candy for Easter, use it as a gift card holder or keep it for yourself.

Etceteras: pasta box birdhouse

Pasta is a popular dinner choice in our house and the pasta boxes are perfect for crafting since they have a built in windows.

There are lots of things you can make with these boxes. I thought birdhouses would be fun.

Here’s how you can make these birdhouses.
  • Open up the bottom and top of the box.
  • Lay the box flat and cut off part of the bottom and top of the box. Keep these pieces to make the roof.
  • Cut out the “A” frame part of the roof and secure to the sides of the house with tape.
  • Cut out the roof and secure with tape.
  • Cover your box with paper.
  • Add birds to the inside so they’re peeking through the window 
 
This project can also be modified for a child’s craft. Use whole sheets of paper instead of shingles or paint the box with craft paint. 



 
 Pasta box birdhouses – a great excuse to eat more pasta.
