How to Make It
1. Use your cutting machine or X-ACTO knife, along with my template, to cut out all of the pieces of the milk carton treat boxes.
Note: If you are using the SVG files that includes the score lines, don’t forget to set them as such in Cricut Design Space and attach them to their shapes before sending them through your cutting machine. I used a lime green color to mark the score lines, so hopefully that helps! If you’re having trouble with the score lines, check out this video.
2. Start by attaching the decorative edges to the bottom of each side. Then, fold along all the score lines, like so.
3. Next, attach the main sides together, gluing the tabs to the inside. Then, fold in the bottom of your box by overlapping each side, one at a time, and working your way around.
Once the bottom of your box is assembled, glue in the side tabs of the top section.
Fill your treat box with whatever goodies you’d like!
To close your container, fold over the top flap and either glue it in place, or punch a couple of holes, and string a ribbon through.
Finish by adding some stickers, ribbon, gems, or whatever other elements you choose to give your box a personal touch!
The fun thing about these boxes is that they can be utilized in so many different ways. By using frosted paper and bling, mine turned out on the fancier side. But, if you wanted them to look more rustic, you could use craft paper and some cute lace!
No matter what you choose, these treat boxes are sure to be a hit.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other fun freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting these milk carton treat boxes to good use. And don’t forget to share your cute, finished creations with me on Instagram!
