Hello Mad Scrappers! Today I have a super simple but super cute project for you - a milk carton gift box!
I picked papers from the Vicki Boutin Colour Study
collection because they're such fun, bright colours and designs and a good thickness for creating these boxes.
Using the template which you can find here
, draw around and cut out the shape on your choice of scrapbook paper or card. Score and fold along the dotted lines. Use glue or double-sided tape
to stick down the side and bottom flaps of the carton.
I punched a hole near the top of the carton on each side so that I could thread a piece of ribbon
through to close it. I then cut a small tag out of each paper, threaded this onto the ribbon, tied a bow and viola, a cute little gift box to fill with treats and goodies!
I've kept these little boxes quite simple but you could easily fancy them up by adding flowers, glitter, whatever you like!
