It is so easy to make, and can be made into any size!
For this project, I printed the cartons at 4x6 inches, which gave me two printables to a sheet! It also made them about the size of a wedding favor box when complete.
Step One: download and print your milk carton favorsTo download:
-Click on image below to view full size
-Right-click the image and choose "Save image as" or "Save picture as" and save the image to your computer.
-Now you can print them off!
Step Two: Cut!
I apologize for two things: 1) the bad lighting in this photo and 2) for almost being out of ink!
Step Three: Fold!
Step Four: Glue!
Apply a small amount of glue to the tab.
Line up the ribbon design, and press close. Then close the bottom flaps, and glue.
Let them dry overnight. (I put tealights into the bottom of each milk carton to act as a weight and keep the bottoms flat while they dried)
Step Five: Hole Punch!
Holding the ends together evenly, punch a hole through the tops. (For larger milk carton favor sizes, you might want to punch two holes in the top!)
Step Six: Fasten!
You can tie off your favor with whatever you want! I used ric rac, but you could use ribbon or raffia! And I guess technically, you should put something INSIDE of your favor before you fasten it. I suggest chocolate.
Step Seven: Embellish!
I used flowers to embellish my milk carton thanksgiving favors. I used two different sizes of flowers, and fastened them together with a small brad. Then I used hot glue to attach them to the carton!
And if you just can’t wait until Thanksgiving to make your own, MMB suggests you hand them out to your neighbors, teachers, and to those special sisters that you visit teach!
