Altered Milk Carton Boxes

These boxes have been so popular since the 2011 SU! Convention. What a brilliant way to use the SU! Bigshot Milk Carton Die #117310. At first, I thought it would be hard to make them but I'm now additively making them :)..hihi.

As you can see, I'm making so many versions of them just to see how versatile designs can fit this lovely box.

Just have 2 Milk Carton Die cut pieces and cut off the 4th side of each piece (the end side WITHOUT the little flap). Scorefold each piece and connect them together with crystal effects glue #101055 (the best glue out there) :)

I've tried many ribbons that would fit these boxes but found that the Organza Ribbon #114319 graced these boxes beautifully. Anything thinner than the 5/8" ribbon would not do justice to these boxes (my opinion :)) Try using the 5/8" Satin ribbons!!

You can also use the XL Tag Punch #119866 to cover up each side of the box as well as the Scallop Square punch #119884! The NEW Lace Ribbon Border #122362 can also be a beautiful embellishment.

I love these so thank you for sharing this with us! I have a question tho. How do you keep the top closed? Do you punch holes and thread a ribbon through then tie a bow? Thanks for your assistance.

These are adorable and you make it sound very easy to assemble. I was wondering the same thing as to you keep the tops closed, do you punch holes in the tops and run the ribbon through. Would you take pics for us? (some of us a VERY visual) Thanks!
