Cut across the right side of the box. Use the "green" area you cut from the front of the box as a template to trace around on the back of the box (Red line). Cut out the back of the box exactly the same as the front leaving the side of the box attached at the top (dotted line).

3. Cut slits along the sides as shown by the red lines in the diagram. Fold down the side and glue it to the curved sides of the body on the tab created by the cut slits (See picture.)

Cereal Box Cat Craft

Cereal box crafts are great learning tools for children because they can learn to follow directions, read diagrams, work with 3D modeling, and measure accurately. You can have them follow the directions exactly like they are written or make up their own designs using the same techniques.
Cereal Box Cat Craft www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need:

Two 18-oz. Cereal Boxes - 7.5" x 10.5" - (A 13-oz. box will also work, but the cat will be thinner.)

Black, White, and Orange Patio Paint

Scissors

Low Temperature Glue Gun

Printer Paper for the Patterns

Ruler

Black Marker

How to Make the Cereal Box Cat:

1. Using the diagram below measure 4 1/4" up from the bottom of the box and mark it with a black marker on the right and left sides of the front and back of the box. (The back of the box should look exactly like the front.) Make four more marks 4 1/4" up from the first marks. (A printable diagram is available to members.)

2. Measure in 2 3/4" in from the second marks and draw a line from the mark down to the first marks to draw the slanted lines of the body. Also draw lines straight up to the top of the box to make the neck. These lines are the fold lines (dotted lines) on the diagram.

3. Draw in the red lines from the diagram and then cut the box on the lines indicated by the red lines.

4. Fold back the dotted lines. Glue the sides of the box down to the slanted sides of the cat's body. Glue the folded sides of the neck together.

9. Fold up the bottom edge of the box at the bottom Points B so that they cover the sides of the cat face shape. Fold where the side of the box meets Points A and then again at the top Point Bs. Cut off the excess length, and glue the sides down.
