Altered Milk Carton Boxes - Tutorial

Hey, there! By popular demand, here is a mini tutorial on how to make these Altered Milk Carton Boxes. It's really easy, but if you really need more detailed instructions, read on....

With two 5-1/2" x 6" Cardstock pieces, use the BigShot Milk Carton Die #117310. Position your cardstock from the seam or tab of the box die. As a result, the other side of the cardstock will only have a portion of the 4th side of the box.

Cut the partial piece of the box. Then, fold all scores.

Now with Sticky Strip or Crystal Effects glue (my college friend, Dodjie, had used the code #101055 as a metaphor for a person who brings people!!!) Thanks, Dodjie. :) Anyway, if you know me well, I prefer using the crystal effects glue on everything! :)

To assemble the box, glue the Cardstock pieces as illustrated.

Then cut the bottom flap corners of the box for easy bottom seal.

TIP: To position your box well, I'd put a round item (maybe a ball or a 2-3/4" diameter sauce dish)

To punch holes on the top edge of the box opening, use the 3/16" hole of the Crop-a-Dial #108362. Punch the hole right in the middle of each fold as illustrated.

Viola!!! You have your gorgeous box :) I hope this mini tutorial helped. Have fun making them!

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!

As usual...AMAZING....I so look forward to your next creating. Don't have that die, but I guess I could make me one in Inkscape or SCAL. It would be nice to afford all these wonderful goodie dies...haha

Thank you for posting this, Kay. I did cut my paper 5-1/2 x 6 to save paper and make two out of a 12x12, but I did struggle with the bottom so now I need to get a little bowl!!! I love this box and have been making several!
Hugs, Cami
