I love making unique treat containers to deliver to friends. I get joy out of making it and my friends (hopefully) get joy out of receiving something handmade. It’s a win win! I wanted to make something versatile this time that could be adapted to any holiday or occasion, so I created a spin off of the traditional milk carton. This one has a flat top and closes with a tie.
The files for this project include lots of different options for embellishing. Besides a few tags and sentiment banners, there are cutting files and instructions for a rolled rose.
I really like the layered look, so for my project today I cut out several of the embellishments and layered them up. I choose vintage watercolor looking ribbon and sparkly sequins to complete the shabby chic look. If you don’t want to try this style, no problem. Simply choose a sentiment banner and an embellishment to decorate with.
The files also include an optional base piece that is purely for decoration.
