Mini Valentine’s Milk Carton

Today’s project is a mini milk carton sized to fit a Lindor Truffle using only a 3″ x 6″ piece of paper!

Here’s a closer look:

And a side view:

And here’s a better view of the sentiment and embellishments:

The “wings” behind the sentiment were a happy accident! There’s a couple of dies in the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies to cut out little leaves, so I thought I’d try cutting out a pair of them from Gold Foil paper. When I layered them behind the heart, they looked kinda like angel wings! Don’t you think?

I love a project that uses a minimal amount of paper so that I can make multiples of it easily. And because this uses a 3″ x 6″ piece of paper, you’ll have no scraps left over. In fact, you can get 8 of these out of a 12″ x 12″ piece of paper.

I promise to create a quick video tutorial for you for this one to show you how easy it is! As soon as I recover from this bout of bronchitis I have, I will get back to my video tutorials! In the meantime, I’ll include the measurements below and I’ll come back to update this post with the video tutorial!

  1. Julie, praying for your speedy recovery. Loving your adorable Milk carton. I’ll be patient and wait for your video, it’s so adorable. TFS !!

  2. I love these little milk cartons. They are small, but still manage to hold a significant amount of chocolate yumminess. The magpie in me has fallen head over heels in love with the dsp you used. If it’s shiny I want it. Outstanding job Julie.
