Tim Coffey Video - Using a Cereal Box as Substrate

I love this idea. Talk about taking down the cost of creating. No longer need to buy those expensive canvases. Now this video can stand alone, but if you want to see how Tim takes it further, go to YouTube and see part 2 and 3. Whole new use for my glue gun. I love it.

Great video, thanks for sharing this. Guess what I will be doing today...eating loads of cereal.

Pretty good idea, Coleen. The beautiful napkins arrived this week. I was amazed at them, such richness of color. Might have to show them off on my blog soon. :)

Thanks for sharing this interesting video, Coleen. I've used cereal boxes cut into ATCs before. My computer is old so I have trouble getting blogs with music or animation. Also, on this video, when he had come to the end of his speaking, most of you would have seen all the video. Not me. He was just beginning to apply the brown paint when the last words were uttered! Kinda hard to remember what to do when they aren't in sync.

This is a wonderful way to make use of our cereal boxes. I have a corrugated carton full of flattened cardboard boxes waiting to be used for art projects. I use cardboard for a lot of my projects but have never even thought of making a "canvas" like this! Thanks! :-)

Blessings!
