Yes, you read correctly...this is my first tutorial! (So be kind on your reviews)
Isn't this little box just toooo stinkin cute! Well, I am going to share with you how I created it from 2 of the Sizzix Mini Milk Carton Bigz L die cuts & the awsome Big Shot die cut machine!!!
Start by cutting 2 milk cartons (item #117310 $32.95) . Then you lay them out as pictured. Cut off the last section on the right. (my pic not exact...when cut, you should have 3 horizontal sections plus the little flap on the left.
This next photo shows them better....see only 3 full flaps plus the small edge for adhering them together. I used Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue (Item #110755 $3.95) to assemble.
then glue the 2nd flap to the inside of the box (looks like a tube at this point).
Then on the bottom, cut slits on each flap to help them lay down easily.
Looking down from the top of the box, you now have a hexigon. In this photo the bottom flaps have been glued down.
Then on the top of the box, fold on all the pre-scored lines to a shape, similar to a star. (because you attached 2 boxes, you will need to add two folds where they haven't been scored. (You'll see what I mean when you assemble yours')
Next, use hole punch & punch holes as illustrated, on each side of the points.
Fill your box with goodies, I also added some cardstock (basic black 1 1/2 x 11) & designer paper (1 x 12) for added decoration. I used Bakers Twine and fished through the holes & pulled tight to close box top.
Note: for the Mini Milk Carton die cut it is recommended that you use the Standard Premium Crease Pad (Item #113476 $8.95)
