Easter Milk Carton Treat Boxes

“Easter is a time of fun and special treats espcially for the kids, so why not sit down with them and make these fun milk carton gift boxes ideal for little chocolate eggs and a great little gift for your friends and neighbours over this Easter period.” - Tracey Collett

You will need:

  • Woodstock Card stock – The World Of Paper – Perfect Partners – Gingham or Polka paper
  • Double Sided Tape
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Score board
  • Ribbon
  • Single Hole Punch
  • Easter themed stamps
  • Momento Ink
  • Alcohol Pens – Inklily/ Promarker/Gossip

Time to Make: 20 minutes

Skill Level: Beginner

Step-by-step:

  1. To make the base of the milk cartons I have used Woodstock card stock by Lynda Chapman’s World of Paper range, I have taken the Lime zest, Zingy Lemon, Ocean Blue and Deep Pink colours and cut them down to 4 1/8” x 6” each. Then on your score board on the landscape score at 1 3/8”, 2 ¾”, 4 1/8” and 5 ½”, then turn to portrait and score at 1 3/8”, 2 ¾” and 3 5/8” so that it looks like photo C. Repeat on all your sheets of card stock.

  2. Cut away the small rectangle on the left handside and cut up to the first fold line in each crease from there ( photo A) , Crease and burnish all the other folds and place a strip of double sided tape along the thin edge as shown in photo B. Close the box and glue in place, on the bottom section, fold the sides in first and then close the back panel and then glue the front panel in place to close the milk carton.

  3. Now your box is sealed at the bottom we need to pinch and close the top section, you do this by pressing the sides in and pinching it closed as shown in photo B.

  4. To keep the box closed you can either hold it shut with a mini wooden peg or as I have done with a single hole punch I have added holes and then tied ribbon through them. You can coordinate or mix it up depending on your colour choices.

  5. Easter Milk Carton Treat Boxes

    To decorate the boxes I have used gingham and polka dot patterned papers which I’ve cut to 1” strips and stuck all around the box and trimmed off the excess. Again this can be colour coordinated or mixed and matched with your other coloured boxes.

  6. To finish the boxes off I have stamped a mini rabbit and coloured it in and fussy cut it out ready to stick to the front of the box. I have added a mini sentiment ‘Happy Easter’ to complete the chocolate treat box. These are so easy to make and a great project for groups, clubs or for the kids to do for their friends and family.
