Milk carton Easter box


One question ..... why have I not made milk carton boxes before?  They are sooo easy, are made from just 1 sheet of A4 card and they look really great!

I've seen quite a few of these boxes while I've been wandering around Blogger and found some measurements on a video clip last night and had to start making it straight away.  I have a feeling that I will be making many more of these now so I will do a bit of a photo tutorial and add it to my blog as soon as I can.  I'm going to fill this box with mini Cadbury eggs and give it to my youngest's friend for Easter.

The image is a digi from Meljen Designs and I've coloured it with pro markers.  The papers are from Dovecraft and I've just used my nesties to cut out the circles. 


I am going to enter this box into the following challenges:
Bee Crafty - Easter & use a digi
Little Claire's Designs - Animals
Crazy 4 Challenge - make an Easter gift
Our Creative corner - Easter 3D project
Ooh La La - Happy Easter
Die Cut Dreams - Easter
Papertake weekly - truly dimensional

Thanks for stopping by,

Amanda

First let me say, thank you, for not over decorating your milk carton. Second, why haven't you made one before? As you found out, they aren't difficult, and they hold all sorts of things!
I do love your clip that holds your tag. Very clever. I also love the chicken. How precious! The coloring is great, and your pattern paper choice was superb! And, I love the glitter/twinkle on the pink bow! Totally cute!
Thank you for playing along in our challenge over @ OCC. I hope that we see more of your wonderful work, again!

So cute!! I'm lazy and just use my die instead. I think yours uses less paper though - you're so smart!!!
