Primary Technique: Green Crafting

Easy

Materials:

  • Plastic milk jug/juice container
  • 1 snap closure and a snap setting tool
  • Small scrap of colored vinyl or contact paper

 

Instructions:

  1. Wash out a milk jug and remove the labels. Use some white spirits to remove any sticky residue that is left behind from the label.
     
  2. Using the photo as a guide, cut the milk jug so that you have three short sides with small flaps, and one longer side which will form the top flap/lid of the First Aid kit.

  3. Fold the flaps down, checking to make sure that the longer flap is the correct size  to cover the top of the container.
     
  4. Using a sewing stiletto or a metal skewer, pierce a small hole in the plastic near the bottom edge of the top flap and position the snap in the hole. Use a snap setting tool or snap press to fix the snap to the lid following manufacturers instructions. Place the corresponding snap on the inside flap and fix in place.
