how to repurpose six pack carrier into a valentine’s day box
Cut the dividers within the six pack.
Turn the carrier over and tape the sides so the carrier stands straight and upright.
Measure of the height and width of the carrier and cut the cardstock paper accordingly.
Cover the front and sides of your six pack.
Since the red cardstock didn’t fully cover the sides, I used a second piece of paper to finish up the sides
Sketch out some wings. These will be attached to the inside of the six pack so ensure they fit within the six pack.
Once cut, create a fold. Glue the folded part and affix to the inside of the six pack.
Decorate the wings to make it look like a butterfly with paper scraps and Valentine stickers.
Cover the carrier handle with some cardstock. Create a hole for easy carrying.
Create antenna using pipe cleaners and pom poms. Affix to the inside of the six pack with tape.
