  • Milk cartons
  • Thread
  • White copy paper

  • Cutter
  • Glue
  • Pointed tool such as an awl

How to

1 Cut a milk carton down to the size you need (5.5 cm from the bottom in this example) with a cutter knife, and wrap white copy paper around it.
The copy paper is to cover up any text or graphics on the milk carton. You can skip this if you like how your carton looks!
2 Cut off the design paper with a top margin of 1.5 cm and a bottom margin of 4 cm.
3 Apply glue to the surface of the milk carton. Wrap the cropped design paper around it with about a 1 cm run off at the top edge. Cut each of the four corners of the bottom into a “V” shape.
4 Apply glue to the top and bottom flaps, fold inside, and stick them down.
5 Make a hole at each of the four corners with a pointed tool such as an awl, and pass a thread of the length you need (50 cm in this example) through each hole and tie it in place.
6 Hold the top end and hold it up in the air. When it balances, tie the top firmly.
7 If you want to attach a handle made of craft paper and so on, make a hole and attach it with a split pin.
