Today I'm sharing a Milk Carton Project that I am going to enter in the current Saturated Canary Challenge #41, which you can find HERE.
I found this template for the Milk Carton at Ruthann Zaroff's web site, which you can find HERE. The template can be made into any size you want...mine is made using a 12" x 12" sheet of White Bazzill Cardstock. The beginning size I cut out is 8" x 11 1/2". With the 11 1/2" side at the top of the Score Board, I scored at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", 8 1/4" & 11". Then turning the paper so that the scored 1/2" tab is at the bottom, I scored at 2", 6" & 7 1/2". When you see the template this should all make sense to you. You will also see that there are a couple more places to score and fold to actually make the finished project look like a Milk Carton!
I started this project months ago... I really became motivated to finish it when I saw that the new Saturated Canary Challenge was "Anything Goes" which is perfect for my Milk Carton Project. I had already finished one side using the Saturated Canary Digital "Roses are Red, Violets are Blue" before setting it aside. This week I worked to finish up the other three sides using a different Saturated Canary Digital for each one.
I'm going to use this Milk Carton as a gift card holder. All I need to do is untie the bow on top, open the carton, place some confetti and a gift card inside, and then retie the bow and the gift will be ready for me to give. I really love how it turned out, hope you do too!
