I have modified a milk carton template to make this project. Use either a scoring board or print out a free milk carton template from the internet, to make a three sided box.
You will need two of these shapes to make your box. The templates are shown in white card so that you can clearly see the score, fold lines. The box and card projects have been made in kraft card for strength and durability.
Score the template as shown, create top folds from the upper crease to the top of box. You will have three sections, a top, middle and base.
Crease you folds as shown. On the top section of the box these will fold in, to create the top of the box and out were your ribbon/twine will be threaded to pull your box top into shape. Punch out small holes along your outward folds as shown, for threading your ribbon/twine. Cut upward along the base lines to form the base of your project.
Glue both of your three sided shapes together using the scored side tabs. Refold the middle section and score with a bone folder to sharpen your box shape. Fold under the cut base sections and glue in an overlapping sequence. I cut a circle shape to fit the bottom of the box and used this over the folds to create a neat base and for added strength.Decorate your box as desired. Thread your ribbon through the punched holes in the box top to create your shaped lid. Add flowers and other decoration as you require.
A sweet gift card has been made using matching papers and elements.
