Milk Carton Gift Box

Hi there! Today's project was inspired by one that I saw which used a milk carton die to make a box. I don't have a die like that, but I have made a few milk carton boxes before, so I came up with my own!

They aren't very hard to make, and you can dress them up or down, and any old way you like! ;) I did realize that my ribbon stash is very lacking at the moment!! I'm in need of some red and green for Christmas projects!!

I hope you enjoy the video. I have a different angle this time around, and I like it! But towards the end, my camera started to slip some from my homemade extension pole that was taped onto my tripod! lol What a setup I tell ya!! But anyway, it worked for the most part!! Thanks for stopping by, and the complete measurements are below the video!!

2 pieces @ 5 7/8" x 5 5/8" cardstock
Score longest side @ 1 7/8", 3 3/4", 5 5/8"
Score shortest side @ 1 3/4", 3 5/8", 4 7/8"

Supplies Used:
Soft Suede cardstock
Bordering Blooms, Choose Happiness, and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets
Cherry Cobbler, and Garden Green ink
Label Bracket and Word Window punches
Natural and Old Olive Two Tone Trim
Linen Thread
