It’s also that time of the year in which we love making cute crafts for our kids.

I thought I’d share a quick and easy Easter craft with you – DIY Milk Carton Easter Treat Box!

These little boxes are super easy to make and filled with some yummy treats would make great little gifts or even cute table decorations.

I personally created them with a cutting machine but if you don’t have one that’s not a reason not to make them.

You can print the printable file I’m sharing and cut them with scissors or a knife. You can decide not to cut out the shapes from the milk carton and add decorations as you like!

Milk Carton Easter Treat Box Tutorial

I created this quick video overview of the process but if you are more of a step-by-step with photos and text, feel free to scroll down.

Firstly, download your files and decide how you are going to proceed. If you have a cutting machine, then go ahead and cut your template.

Cutting the templates on a cutting machine

I used decorated cardstock for the milk carton and gold cardstock for the egg and bunny decoration.

Cutout of the elements to make the Treat boxes

If you decide to cut by hand then you will find a PDF for you to print. Make sure you don’t fit to page nor modify the size in any way so your decoration will fit perfectly. As I mentioned before, you can decide whether not to cut out the shapes from the milk carton and add decorations as you like!

Also, if you printed your template, then using your ruler and scissors, score along all the dashed lines.

Once you have the template ready, fold following the folding lines. For this part of the process, I recommend checking out the video (second 00:27).

Simulate the assembling of the box to make sure you got everything right.

Then open it again and lay it down inside facing up.

Place your acetate sheet on top of the egg and bunny cutouts. Make some marks to cut rectangles that would cover around the designs.

Cut 4 acetate rectangles.

Then using hot glue or your favorite glue (I don’t recommend white glue) secure the acetate in place covering completely the eggs and bunnies.

Then secure by gluing the tab.

Fold in the bottom: short shape first, then side flaps, then secure the bottom with glue.

Apply glue to the back of each egg and bunny frame and place it to match the milk carton cutouts.

Decorating the easter treat boxes with gold accents.

Secured the milk carton with a pressure paper clip to create the shape.

Next, decorate each side (if desired) with cute paper flowers. 

Mines were made with paper much cutting different color cardstock and gluing 2 different shades.

I placed single flowers as the base to simulate volume and then placed a double one on top. Add rhinestones if desired.

Repeat on each side if desired.

Then, glue the ribbon bow to the one side of the clothespin.

Fill your cute milk carton treat box with all the candies you want. I used kinder eggs, some other smaller chocolate eggs and chocolate bunnies.

Lastly, secure your milk carton with your cute bow clothespin.

You are done!

I made 2 of these since my girl wanted to give one to her best friend.
