    Step 1:

    1. Cut the side flaps off the top of the cereal box, making sure to leave the front and back flaps.
    2. Cut out a rectangle on the front of the box. To do this, follow the corner fold of the box to cut almost halfway down the front on one side. Then cut straight across to the other side and back up the opposite corner fold as shown. Remove that section and save for the next step.
