Where's the crafts?

It's been an awful long time since I've done any crafting but I realized there was something I made before the craft show that I never showed you.

I tried to find a link to where I found these at but I finally gave up. The blog I saw them on didn't give exact measurements for how to do these and I sort of tweaked mine a bit too.

Any way. I made some milk carton treat containers. I was selling these empty with the bottoms not sealed that they could fill them themselves and either tape or glue the bottom shut.



The ones that were left over after the craft show I filled with candy and took to work to pass out to my favorite customers and to some of the employees.

These were quick and simple to make and you can get two containers out of one 81/2 x 11 sheet of paper.

If someone will let me (meaning Gibbs) I want to make some for Christmas to pass out at work and maybe even as stocking stuffers with little gifts inside

Oh, those are GREAT! How big are they? I would think they would be cute for a gift card and maybe some little candies inside.

Looks fun, where's my candy?LOL

Those really are cute. Share the directions?

Grace said...

Those are marvelous - pretty, fun and useful! Everyone should probably have a few on hand - you just never know when you might need one - Seriously. (Besides I like boxes of any kind.) I bet it would be a great activity for kids too.

Those are adorable. What a clever idea.

Tell Gibbs to behave so you can make some for Christmas. You could bribe him with treats? You could have him help?

Have a fabulous day. Scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

So how in Heavens name did you do this???? They are so adorable! Please tell Gibbs that Abbey needs him in the other room...:)JP

These are awesome! So they are not covered up milk cartons, they are all made from scratch? How long does it take to make one? What kind of paper do you use? I used to paper craft and make really cute paper baskets.

These are perfect to stuff with nice holiday treats to give out. Catherine xo

How adorable ---and so nice that you had some left-over to share with your favorite customers.... That is so neat.

How's Gibbs doing? I'm sure he's already in charge of your household (especially since Duke taught him how to be in charge)..... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

This is the most clever idea! And without surprise, yours turned out fantastic.

By the way, if you ever need someone to sit with Gibbs while on vacation...I'm just a phone call away.

Those are so cute Ann, great idea! Maybe Gibbs will let you make some if you promise to fill one of them with puppy treats?!
