I love making boxes but just don't get enough times when I need them! I had seen some tiny little milk carton boxes on Pootles Blog and thought they we lovely. Sadly they were alittle too small for what I wanted but fear not as Sam, the lady behind Pootles had other sizes on her blog to make. I used this one for the size but copied the idea of having round cutouts on each side from the tiny milk carton tutorial. Both tutorials have videos to go with them. Pop along to Sam's blog for more info!
Back to the ones I made. I wanted to put little eggs in mine and they were just right for the mini milk carton. I used a 1 inch circle punch for the cutouts but this meant that my eggs fell out as they were smaller so I punched out 4 squares of acetate that were alittle bigger than the circle hole and stuck them on the inside of each side panel.
To decorate, I made a little chick from the Stampin Up! Build a Bird punch. I trimmed the tail of the bird to make it look more like a chick. I then stuck it on the little peg. I also punched out a few flowers and stuck these either side of the circle cutout at the front of the carton.
I filled them up with some solid chocolate eggs that I bought in Lidl. They are on offer at the moment so were 2 packs for £2. Each pack is 200g and you get loads of little eggs in bag. the foils were nice colours as well - turquoise, pink, green and gold.
The above photo was obviously after I had taken out the blue and majority of the pink ones!! I tasted them to see how they conmpared to Cadburys and to be honest I probably would not know the difference!
10 eggs fitted nicely into the milk cartons though you could fit more in if you wanted to.
