Milk Carton Box Mini Tutorial

Here is a quickie photo tutorial to show how easy it is to make the Mini Milk Carton into a beautiful Double Milk Carton Gift Box! I love when I can use my Big Shot dies more than one way!
 The 'Sandwich' - Bottom Cutting Plate, a Shim, Bigz Die, cardstock (8 1/2 x 5 1/2 - a half sheet of cardstock works great), Crease Pad (instead of the top Cutting Pad.) Do this twice - you want to die cut one piece at a time because of the score lines.

 Cut off one side of both die cuts - the NON-TAB side.
 Add an extra diagonal score line to the row of scored lines, with a ruler and Bone Folder.

Fold and score all the score lines and then use Sticky Strip or Mono Multi Purpose Glue to adhere the tabs to a non-tabbed side, matching up the score lines and edges. Then adhere the bottom flaps together.

You're almost done! - Fold all the top pieces and push it in to create this pillow top. Pinch a few creases to get them nice and crisp. Add some of the yummy Spice Cake Designer Series Paper, Fabric and Buttons!

Love the little boxes - perfect for "good things come in small packages."
