Designer’s Tip: Crease the paper as you wrap around the corners of the carton. This helps when adhering the paper to the carton sides.



  1. Cover surface with newspapers. Place the unassembled milk carton on the papers and mist one side at a time with Smooch. Blot with a paper towel if you have over sprayed and let dry. Assemble the carton and secure the top with glue.
  2. Tear one long edge of a 2 ¼” wide strip dark green strip paper and wrap around the sides of the carton, ¼” from the bottom edge. Tear one long edge of a 1 3/4” wide strip of light green/purple flower paper. Glue the bottom edge even with the dark green paper and wrap around the carton sides.
  3. Wrap purple sheer ribbon just under the light green paper and knot. Personalize the coordinating green tag cut-out and secure a small purple flower with a green brad and attach a purple brad at the top of the tag. Glue the tag to the top of the carton.
