DIY: Milk Carton Lunch Container

Here’s a simple repurposing project and convenient use for your milk cartons. This is a perfect fit for a sandwich or snack!

Milk Carton Lunch Container

What you’ll need:

  • 1 gallon milk carton
  • marker
  • scissors
  • thumbtack
  • adhesive-backed velcro dot


  1. Mark the carton as shown and cut along the lines
  2. To make the crease lines use a thumbtack to pierce a row of dots at 1/4-inch intervals across each side of the jug, 1 3/4 inches up from the bottom.
  3. Fold the flaps at these dotted lines, then open them and fold them in the opposite direction along the lines (this will make the flaps easier to open and close).
  4. Fold up the box and add an adhesive-backed Velcro dot closure.
