Large shabby chic milk carton

Happy Monday everyone, today we have a beautifully decorated, large, milk carton gift box simple design but decorated beautifully. I managed to make the box slightly wider than most designs with the use of structure strips to build the box. It gives us an extra little bit of room doing it this way ...every little helps.

I wanted a pretty feminine look so chose Fresh florals DSP to match the beautiful centrepiece I made using the Beautiful Bouquet framelits. Each piece cuts out individuals and you can have a very relaxing and enjoyable time constructing the pieces to form your own little work of art.
The bundle is a fantastic set with countless possibilities and the price point means that during Sale-A-bration you would earn a free Sale-A-Bration item. 

I did add further detail to make my box extra special, the tassel is from my personal crafty hoard but the gold binder clip and pearls are Stampin' Up! I saved a few pennies by using the white card backing that comes with 12 x 12 DSP packs. Every little helps and these backing sheets make real sturdy boxes.

I hope you will give this project a try, measurements and products used are listed below. I also have a step by step Youtube tutorial for you to follow. Don't forget to follow my blog and click like and subscribe on my Video I really do appreciate the support. So grab a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video.
