We have often shown you what can be done with old plastic bottles, for example, but the following project wins the prize. We show you how to make an elegant pouch from two empty milk cartons. A real eye-catcher that no one else will have!

In the workshop :

  • 2 different pieces of fabric
  • Magnetic snap button
  • Instant glue
  • Brooch

At work !

1. Cut out the top and bottom of an empty milk carton, then open the entire carton. Unfold it so that you have a rectangle in front of you.
