Milk Carton Gift Caddy

Hi everyone, I’ve made this lovely Milk Carton Gift Caddy or storage box.

I’ve seen these around for a long time, and as I mentioned in my video, Sam from Pootles has made a lot and I saw a video from Crafty Diva from about 9 years ago and of course, the Milk Carton has been around for decades, so I thought I would give it a go and this is my take on it.

The milk cartons are a great size and perfect for gift giving by themselves.

I’ve seen many members of our group already sharing their versions with some crafters having an open box with the top of the carton and using it to store pens and brushes!

I’ve made this as part of my Valentine’s series, however like many of my projects this can be made for so many occasions and perfect as a tool caddy or a favour centrepiece on a table for a hen or dinner party.

I usually list and supply links to the products used, however, the Oval Nesting dies have sold out the Pink Paper Block was purchased from my local Range store and not available online.
