*This post contains affiliate links* I love giving homemade treats as presents. I also love coming up with fun ways of gift wrapping those homemade treats. On a recent trip to Joanne's Fabrics, I saw a beautiful paper stack and it was only $6! The paper was too pretty to cover up with photos for scrapbooking, and I thought they would be perfect for a project to display some Summer time treats. I ended up going with this milk carton design and just love them.
You may remember that a few months ago, I was writing about wanting to get a Cricut for paper crafting. When the Cricut Explore™ came out and I saw all of the gift and treat boxes as well as gift tags and cupcake wrappers that could be made with the machine, I knew I had to have one. I had saved up for a couple of months and finally got my Cricut a week and a half ago. I've been going crazy with the paper crafting since then! I have made more paper crafting projects than I would have imagined in the last few days, and have loved them all. Today, I wanted to share with you these milk carton treat boxes because they're so cute and also because I think they would be great for back to school. To make the milk carton treat boxes, I logged into my Cricut Design Space™ account on my laptop. My Cricut came with a free 2 week subscription to the design space, so I had access to over 25000 images to choose from (I'm definitely going to continue the subscription.) I searched for "treat boxes" and came across the milk carton design. I added the image to my Cricut design space and then stretched the milk carton to the size that I wanted.
