- Empty Milk Jug
- Marker Pen
- Scissors
- Button
- Threading Needle
- Embroidery Floss
- Elastic Hairband

• Rinse out the milk jug and peel off the label. If any residue remains, run it under hot water and scrub away with a dish sponge.

• To create the flaps, use a marker to draw four half circles, one on each side of the jug. Make one side as tall as possible to create the lid (see image above). 

• Cut along the inside of the lines and discard the remaining pieces.

• Bend down all four flaps so it starts to take the form of a container. If it doesn't fold properly, try making longer slits on each corner of the milk jug. 

• To create a button loop closure, sew on a button on the top lid.

• Directly underneath on the bottom base of the milk jug, pierce a hole with the edge of your scissors. Run a hairband halfway through, knotting the end from the inside of the container to hold in place.

• Optional: To personalize the container, decoupage your favorite decorative paper on the lid using Mod Podge, following the directions on the bottle.
