DIY: Embellished Plaques

You might have seen my holiday wreath yesterday. Today I'm going to show the steps of making these sturdy little collaged plaques. Keep reading for the steps!

I keep my cardboard food boxes handy for these sorts of projects. You can make two nice-sized plaques (I don't know what else to call them - any suggestions?) out of one side of a cereal box. I free handed one side of this shape, folded it in the middle and traced the other side to match. You can see my middle line in one of the photos - that's where I folded to get even sides. Then I adhere paper to the cardboard, trace and cut out. That stuff is the not-so-fun part. Now you get to embellish, the best part!
I recently made an oversized card for my sister using this same technique! Do you hang on to your cereal boxes? If so, what do you use them for?
