Pootles 6×6 Week #3 Slim Milk Carton Tutorial

Pootles 6x6 Week #3 Slim Milk Carton Tutorial

I’m endlessly amazed at just how ‘big’ a box I can make with only a small piece of paper. Okay, that’s not meant to be ironic, but given the slender nature of yesterday’s project, it does surprise me that this box appears to be bigger even though the paper is the same size to start with….

Everyone loves a milk carton style box. They’re easy to make, look cute when stacked together and displayed, and the possibilities are endless with them!

And of course, milk carton type boxes are a great way to show off a gorgeous DSP and these 2 are rather lovely!

Pootles 6x6 Week #3 Slim Milk Carton Tutorial Stampin Detail


Pacific Point isn’t a colour I’d normally put with Very Vanilla, but that’s exactly what I’ve done here on one, and I think it looks rather fab!

I hope you enjoy my video, and perhaps you’ll show me your milk cartons too!
