Juice Box Tote | Assembly Tutorial

Juice Box Tote Tutorial

I’ve been working on some secret sister gifts this week, and after wasting a fair bit of time trying to modify existing 3D holders to fit these Minute Maid juice boxes, I decided it was easier to design a tote box myself from scratch. I designed this box in Silhouette Studio, and it turned out so well I want to share it with you!

Written juice box tote assembly instructions:

1.  Cut out two main box pieces from plain sturdy cardstock. I used kraft cardstock by The Paper Studio (from Hobby Lobby).

2.  Cut two triangular end pieces and two rectangle pieces from decorative sturdy pattern paper.

3.  Fold on the perforations so all the flaps bend up towards you.

4.  Glue the two main box backs together–back to back–so the handles, bottom edges, and side edges line up. Use the strongest glue you have.

5.  Add adhesive to all the small glue tabs.

6.  Press the sticky tabs to the inside of the box flaps to create the tote sides.

7.  Using your finger or a long tool like the end of a pen, rub the glued flaps with the box against a hard surface.

8.  Glue the decorative end pieces on to hide the seams and to provide more stability.

9.  Add the front and back decorative panels, along with any embellishments you wish.

(This fits four Minute Maid brand 6 oz. juice boxes.)

Juice Box Gift Tote Tutorial and Free Cut FileWouldn’t this make a great teacher gift? You can’t tell from the pictures, but the apple is actually a magnet cut from Silhouette adhesive magnet paper, then decorated with layers of plain and adhesive cardstock. I attached it with painter’s tape so it can be easily removed from the box and used as a cute apple magnet.

I’ve shared another project with this tote as a secret sister gift, so go check it out! Don’t forget to Pin this post if you think you might like to make one of these juice box totes. Happy crafting!
