Fabulous! My daughter asked me why I gave her so much cereal this morning - uh, because I want the cereal box! Then she reminded me that she actually asked for porridge.

What kind of "glue" did you use to do the collaging? Great idea, btw!

Hi all,

thank you for the nice comments.
Recycling is a serious obsession .....cereal boxes are the best for all sorts of things.

As for the 'glue', I use Golden Self Leveling Clear Gel.
I find that it works better than the Regular Gel (Matte or Gloss)
