Cereal for the Scrapbook

My kids and I spend alot of time near water so alot of our pictures are beach pictures. When we make a beach page in our scrapbooks we put a couple handfuls of cereal in a sandwhich bag (doesn't matter what kind), bash the crap out of it and glue the crumbs to the bottom of the page as sand. When it dries I cover it with modge podge or puzzle glue to make sure its all going to stay there.

won't the cereal go moldy eventually?

You might also try using some Whacy Tack paper or even the super strength double sided tape. I have used these for MicroBeads nothing comes off that tape and you wouldn't have to cover it with anything.

i was looking at some of that whacky tack paper today in a scrapbooking store, but it was 8 dollars and have never used it before. i've also never heard of it before. is it a good investment?

Also, unless you had clear glue, it would mess up the look unless you put glue on first. Also, why don't you just use real sand? =D

It sounds like a good idea, I miss those days making fun pictures with cotton wool for sheep or clouds or sweet wrappings for seas. When we were kids we used to use dry pasta for making beaches as it doesn't rot and go mouldy!

How fun! I bet the kids love smashing the cereal. I'd love to see your pages that have this done. Do you have any posted online anywhere? The modge podge is a great idea, i'm sure the cereal would never go bad with that stuff over it. Very creative! Have fun smashing!!!
