2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 47 ENTRIES / Milk Carton Madness with Gingham Style and Video Tape on: February 01, 2010 03:29:03 PM

I have been saving milk cartons for a while now, not really knowing what to do with them, but they are so pretty

All I needed of course was a little bit of inspiration from Craftster and voila....

I used 69 milk cartons, video tape that was headed for the dustbin and 2 pieces of ribbon which I rescued from a previous project so this bag cost me nothing but time!

Some in progress pictures

I cut the top and bottom off each carton, cut up one side to create a flat panel and then cut each side into seperate pieces, I then cut these into strips.  The length of the strips has to be 8 times the width, mine measure 20cm x 2.5cm.

I folded each strip in half and then the ends to the middle, creating a link.  I made 11 chains with these links. Then weaved video tape through the backs of them to hold the chains together.

all held together with video tape

I then folded it in half and used video tape to hold the ends and bottom closed then threaded a ribbon though for a handle.

and after I have been shopping

a stowaway!

Hope you like it. Smiley  

It is very sturdy, I have carried over 8 kilos of shopping in it and it seems to provide good insulation for my frozen stuff too which is a bonus.

I am currently making another one and taking better 'how to' pictures as I go.
