This Pantry Hack Will Make Back-to-School Lunch Packing a Breeze

It’s back-to-school time! ‘Tis the season to get back in the swing of things — and hopefully tackle all of those to-dos :) Today, with the help of NABISCO, we have a simple hack to streamline packing your little ones’ lunches: labeled pantry boxes made out of NABISCO Multipack boxes, available at Target. Check it out!

This super simple pantry hack will make all the difference for Mom on those busy, bustling mornings. Keep scrolling for the step-by-step tutorial.

Materials and Tools: (for grown-up use only! ;)

  • NABISCO Multipack boxes
  • colorful cardstock paper
  • dry erase contact paper
  • cutting device
  • stencil
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • clear craft glue (we use Mod Podge)
  • paintbrush

Psst: Most of these materials and tools are available at Target. One-stop shopping FTW!

Instructions:

  1. Use the cutting device to remove the top of the Multipack box.
  2. Measure box dimensions, then cut out panels of colorful cardstock to cover the inside and outside of the box. Apply craft glue to the box and edges of paper and attach all panels.
  3. Measure two-inch squares, then cut them in half to create triangles.
  4. Affix them to the outside of the box using craft glue and a paintbrush. Cover the entire outside of the box with a thin coat of craft glue, then let dry.
  5. Use a circle stencil to draw a circle on the dry erase contact paper, then attach it to the front of the box. Label away!
