DIY Firefighter Favor Box - Beginner Friendly 

Better call the fire department - this craft is hot! 

We are creating a milk carton gift box with paw print windows and a firehouse theme. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through creating this craft step-by-step.

Let's get started!

Materials Needed:

Before you start: Prepare Your Materials

Gather all your materials in a clean, spacious workspace. Ensure that your cardstock and Cleary Craft Plastic is cut and ready to go. 

Step 1: Create your Box

Start by forming the milk carton box by folding the box along all of the score lines. Crease the triangle-shaped score marks inwards as this will create the top of the milk carton box. 

Add glue onto the tabs and combine the two pieces of your cardstock and lay flat. 

Step 2: Create a Window

Glue your acetate pieces on the paw print windows. Flip the cardstock over so the paw print outline is in front of the acetate plastic. 

Glue your gold frame around the windows. 

Step 3: Add your Gold Elements

Decorate the box with your gold foil paper. With the cardstock still laid out flat, add the golden frames on the outside of the windows to outline the paw print cut-out. 

Place the large gold squares on the corresponding paper square. Above that square wil be the smaller rectangle and above that will be the smallest rectangle. 

Step 4: Assemble your Decorations

Find the pieces to create your flame and glue them together. Attach with Cubies onto the middle golden rectangles. 

Find the pieces to create your Dalmatian dog and attach them with Cubies to create dimension for your loyal fire dogs. Attach with Cubies to the large gold squares. 

Step 5: Connect your Box

Finally, glue the tabs of the cardstock ends and create your milk carton box. Glue the bottom together. Form the top by pressing the small triangles inward to create a pyramid-shaped top. 


Step 6: Assemble your Firetruck 

Layer all of your fire truck pieces until happy and then glue them together. 

Step 7: Finished!

And there you have it!

Your very own Firetruck and Firehouse treat milk carton box is ready. Experiment with different background papers, shapes, and fillings to personalize your creation even further.

Enjoy crafting!
