Here's a side view of the finished project.
So, today, I'm sharing my measurements and instructions to make the holder for the milk cartons. FYI, the milk carton die is a SU exclusive. When it was first released, I quickly ordered one and upon cutting it out thought, wow, this is so small! But I really LOVE the size now. Just the right size to put small candies/treats in them. BTW, have you seen the prices of Easter candies? I nearly fell down at Longs checking out prices. I guess I'll have to wait for the sale on Sunday.
Anyway, here we go! You will need 2 pieces of cardstock cut to size 5 3/8" X 7 1/4".
I did all of my scoring using my Fiskars cutter. I love this cutter because you can alternate the cutting blade and the scoring blade.
With the 5 3/8" side on the top, score 1" on each side.
OOPS! I JUST REALIZED THAT IN MY NEXT PHOTO, I DID NOT TURN THE CARDSTOCK...SO SORRY! I think you can still understand my instructions...
Turn the cardstock so that the 7 1/4" side is now on the top. Score at 1" and 2 3/4". This is the tricky part...move the cardstock to 3 3/4" line on your cutter, but ONLY SCORE TO THE 1" HORIZONTAL LINE. Can you see it at the arrows??
Put the 5 3/8" side on the top again and trip off part of the 1" strips on both sides ONLY TO WHERE YOU SCORED AT 3 3/4" so that your piece will look like this:
Trim the tabs to look like the photo. You don't have to trim the tabs, but it's less bulky when you put the tray together if you trim the tabs. Add adhesive as shown.
Form the trays on each piece. Next, adhere both trays to each other and using your large oval punch, punch out the handles as shown.
I decorated the sides of the try with DSP scraps (you will need four pieces cut at 3" X 3/4"). Decorate as desired.
That's it! Not too hard right? Give it a try and tell me what you think. Making the holder is easier than doing this tutorial! LOL!
I'm sharing with you again the project we did last weekend at my class.
For those of you who ordered my March class kits "to go", they are completed and are on it's way to you! Hope these instructions help you assemble your holder although I already cut and scored everything for you!!
If you decide to make this holder, please share with me your finished project, I'd love to see what you came up with.
Thanks for stopping by today. Yet, another busy weekend for me! Hopefully I'll be able to get more projects to share done!
