Hello and thanks for joining me.
I love making milk carton style boxes. They are so easy to make and just as easy to resize if you want to.
I’ve made this size so many times than I could count but I still love to try it out with new colours and papers so here’s my latest version…
I’ve used a Rococo Rose and Sahara Sand design from the Woven Threads designer series paper pack so used card stock in the same colours.
This size is a good fit for a small Yankee candle jar like this one…
If you’d like the dimensions and cutting guide for this box please click here to see another recent example.
I didn’t want to distract too much from the beautiful paper so I kept the decoration on the front of this box really simple. I stamped the Thank You from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set that I used for yesterday’s card in Rococo Rose ink onto Sahara Sand card and cut it with my 2 inch circle punch. I used my Starburst punch on some Rococo Rose card and glued this to the back of the stamped one before adding to the box. I added some self adhesive sequins too.
I’ve used a retired ribbon to close the top of this box but I think it would look great with the Braided Linen Trim instead; unfortunately I don’t have any.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project. It would make a lovely little thank you gift and I’m sure it would be greatly appreciated by the recipient.
