Milk carton crafts

A fabulous recycling project idea for Mother’s Day created from Tetra Pak

It seems such a waste to throw away empty milk and juice cartons when there are so many wonderful upcycling ideas around. Take a look at these little gift bags, for example. This milk carton craft idea uses the silvery inner surface of a Tetra Pak carton to make a pretty bag for flower seeds. The edding 1800 profipen is ideal for decorating the outside of the bag with a matching plant design – a lovely gift idea for Mother’s Day! If you prefer, you can fill the bag with other goodies or tasty treats instead of seeds: how about some fragrant tea or your favourite sweets (you can put in whatever you like, as long as it’s small enough to fit inside the bag ;-).
