image for Corn Flakes Box Doorstoppers: How To Make One Make sure the flaps are sellotaped securely!

Here we are again with the latest in our How To Make One series, and this time it's something extremely useful, and also muchly cheap!

If you've ever needed something to keep the door ajar on hot summer days, you're in luck, because my latest idea is the Corn Flakes box doorstopper.

First, you need an empty Corn Flakes box. Size doesn't matter, but, if you really want to impress the neighbours, you should plump for the 1kg box.

The first step is to devour the Corn Flakes. Once you have done this, take some sticky sellotape, and fasten down the lid flaps so that they are secure. Slackened flaps would not make the doorstopper look tacky, and you certainly wouldn't want that.

Coincidentally, the first step just happens to also be the very last step, so now you are ready to put the doorstopper to good use by placing it next to the door frame of the door you want to keep open. If the door is a solid, heavy door which is likely to squash the Corn Flakes box doorstopper to a pulp, you should go back and stuff a brick into the Corn Flakes box before you sellotape the flaps shut, for some extra strength. Then, proceed as before.

Hopefully, you'll enjoy many happy hours of doorstopping with your Corn Flakes box doorstopper.

Let me know how you go on. I'm always keen to receive your feedback with regard to my How To Make One tips. Just write to me in the forum.

Well, good luck, and keep your eyes peeled for the next one!
