You need that

White clay paper
Pattern (download here)
Craft knife & ruler
Laser – Cut Adhesive
Hot glue gun
Mini-figures “cows, black-white”
String, Ribbon & Stamp

1) Make your own mini milk carton!
Print out the PDF of the mini milk box template on strong clay paper or on a fine cardboard. Whether white or coloured is up to you! Then cut out the milk carton along the solid line with scissors. Alternatively, you can first print out the PDF sketch on a sheet of paper, then transfer it to the cardboard with a pencil and cut it out. Fold the card along the dotted lines and cut out the small opening at the top with the craft knife. This will be the closure for the box later.
Then fold the cardboard into the right shape along the pre-folded lines. Then apply Laser - Cut Adhesive to the side flaps and fold the milk carton. You can use paper clips to stabilise it. Or - if you want it to go even faster - use the hot glue gun! Fold the tabs on the bottom of the box and stick them together. Fold the top sides inwards as shown in the picture.
When your milk carton packaging is ready, set it aside to dry. In the meantime, you can cut out a small strip of coloured paper (approx. 21 x 3 cm). We chose light blue with white dots!

2) Cool cows!
Now it's time for the best part - the decoration! The cut paper strip can now be stamped, labelled and embellished with string and bows to your hearts content. You can also simply place a sticker on it.
Stick it in the middle of the box and tie a nice ribbon around it!
And now the "cool cows" come into play! You can tie them to the ribbon or stick them on the packaging or put them next to it. How cool is that? A miniature cow on a gift box that looks like a small milk carton!
