Making the Template

In order to begin making this DIY Milk carton treat box, you first need your template. Start by downloading our FREE pdf milk carton box template and load your printer with the paper or card you have chosen, then print it out.
In addition to this, you can also print out the template on a separate, plain piece of paper and transfer the markings over.

Cut out template.

Once you have printed out your template, it is time to cut it out. In order to do this, take you time and cut around the solid black lines that have been printed. Additionally, it is important that you DO NOT cut the dashed lines.

Scoring vertical lines
Next on our DIY milk carton treat box, we move onto the scoring the lines. On the whole, this simply means to fold over and thoroughly flatten the fold. Begin scoring your vertical lines first. 
Although you can use many tools to score your paper (including your fingers or a store card), many crafters like to use a scoring board. On the whole, this is usually a plastic platform with vertical grooves that allows you to score your paper or card much easier. In addition to this, these board will also have measurements across the top and side to aid in ensuring that you are scoring in the correct place. You can purchase a scoring board HERE

Scoring horizontal lines
As well as vertical lines, the template also needs scoring on the horizontal lines. Once again, use your chosen tool to thoroughly score the horizontal lines. See image for reference.

Scoring diagonal lines

Once you have completed the lines above, it is time to score the diagonal lines near the top of your paper. Unlike the other lines, these diagonal lines will need to be scored on both sides of the paper as this will give an overall better result.

Assembling the box
Next, it is time to assemble the DIY milk carton treat box. Once you have completed the scoring, add some strong adhesive to the areas that are indicated in pic 7. Next, fold vertical lines and attach glued tab to the inside of the first box. 
After this, fold in the bottom of your box and secure. Repeat with the top of your box and you will have your cute, completed DIY milk carton.
On the whole, you can secure the top in many different ways. Although it is easy to glue this tab, this could however, risk damaging your box if you want to keep it. Alternatively, you can use: paper clips, bulldog clips or Small pegs. As well as this, you can also punch several holes through this tab and secure with a ribbon.
