Mini Milk Carton Birthday Favors

Today is my son Nolan’s 3rd birthday! He was born at home into his daddy’s arms the morning of September 11th, 2015 and he’s been such a beacon of light on an otherwise sad day in history. Here he is on the day he was born:

And here’s what I looked like on my due date 2 days earlier (LOL!):

And here’s our silly boy today:

So, when your mommy is a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, you get handmade party favors to share with your friends! I made mini milk cartons to hold a little self-inking stamp!

Here’s a different view:

Here’s the side view:

And here they are all lined up:

And of course I had to create a little box base to put them in so they’re easier to carry:

I don’t have a video tutorial for you today, but I promise I will create one for you, so stay tuned! These little milk cartons are fun to make! In the meantime, here’s a template for you:

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!


  • Blueberry Bushel card stock – 3-1/4″ x 4-3/8″
    • Score along the 4-3/8″ side at 1″, 2″, 3″, and 4″
    • Rotate clockwise and score along the 3-1/4″ side at 1″, 2-1/4″, and 2-7/8″
    • Rotate back counter-clockwise and score at 1-1/2″ and 3-1/2″, but only down to the 1st horizontal score line
    • Create diagonal score lines from the short score lines down to the adjacent vertical score lines (see template above)

  1. What an adorable project ! However, you have to be mistaken because he can’t be three yet. It seems like just a few months ago you brought that tiny boy to enchant all the Royals at our team get together. Anyway, Happy Birthday Nolan brother of our Lovely Lillie.

  2. Happy Birthday to Nolan! Today is my birthday also! A bittersweet day. Thanks for sharing your amazing projects! Look forward to them daily!

  3. Happy Birthday Nolan! What sweet sweet pictures. Thanks for sharing. It looks like you were more than ready for his birth! Congrats on a home birth too! That’s very special.
    Love this little box — when I first saw it I was afraid it was going to need a die and am happy to find that it doesn’t. Your directions and template are very good. I am going to attempt this without a video! Feeling brave today! LOL I have attempted a cute ornament that you did last year around Christmas time. I didn’t “get it” then and am still having trouble for some reason. I am going to give it a few more tries before I give up for good. (It is made with 3 triangles that fit together and for some reason I just can’t seem to follow directions. )
    Have a fun day with your sweet little boy!

  4. Aren’t you a great momma? Of course you are! You’re little boy Norah is a lucky little boy to have a talented momma like you. I’m so grateful you came up with these little milk cartons. I’ve been looking around for a pattern like this. Thank YOU for sharing your pattern with us! I know some school kids that will be very excited to get these with a special treat inside. It’s hard to believe he’s three already. I signed up with SU! right before you had him!
