More milk cartons, this time with instructions

So if you're a regular @ my blog, you must've seen that I made a milk carton box just a few days ago. I was so happy with my success that I decided to make more! Actually, next monday we've a festival as part of which I want to give the kids in my neighbourhood some small gift and so I decided to make these for them. Since the last time I made them I figured that I really didn't need to score some of the lines so this time I made my own template of course based on Beate's @ "fresh and fun".

Materials used:

  • Wasau white exact index
  • PP - again a $1 find!
  • Ribbon - this too was a $1 for 5 yards @ Michaels!!
  • Double sided tape

They're very simple to make:

  1. Download my template here (it is meant for an A4 or 8.5 X 11 inch paper). The template is quite self-explanatory.
  2. Cut along the solid lines and score along the dashed line (---). For scoring the angled lines, I used a ruler.
  3. Glue the "TAB" to the other end and the bottom flaps together. I used the double sided tape.
  4. If you want to cover it with DP/PP like I did, I think it's better to do it before you start the glueing-together process. Rest of the decorations can be done when the box is ready.
