How To: Make Tiny Milk Carton Favor Boxes
This weekend I drew a template for a teeny, tiny milk carton…and I LOVE it! Perfect for favors–for kids’ parties and showers of the bridal and baby variety especially–or use them as gift boxes. The finished size of each carton is 1 1/2″ by 1 1/2″. Here’s what you do to make one:
First, download and print this template out on to card stock. (There are two templates per one 8 1/2″ 11″ page.)
Using a scissors, cut the template from the page.
Using a boning tool and a straight edge, score all the lines of the template.
Even the pointy lines!
Then valley-fold all the horizontal and vertical lines.
Re-fold the top fold as a mountain fold.
Cut up to the first horizontal fold as shown.
Glue the tab shut on the side of the carton. Then fold in the bottoms of the carton and glue in place.
Decorate your tiny milk carton, fill with your goodies and then glue the top shut, securing with a butterfly clip until dry.
