Juice cartons tend to pile up in the recycling bin quickly, and one easy way to reuse a juice carton is by making a recycled orange carton wallet together with your child. It only takes a few minutes to make and gives your little one a fun carrying case for trading cards, dollar bills and coins. You don't even need any supplies beyond a juice carton and a couple of cutting tools. Read on to learn how to make one in a few short steps.
What you will need:
Step 1: Design It
Step 2: Prepare It
Using scissors cut off both sides, the bottom, and the front part below the spout on the carton. The only part that remains is the front part with the spout and the entire back piece.
Step 3: Fold It and Cut a Hole
Fold the back piece around to the front until it lays flat over the front spout, press firmly (this will leave an indent where the spout touches the backside.) Use a cutting tool, cut out the indent so that the hole fits securely over the spout.
Step 4: Trim It
Step 5: Fill It
Step 6: Close It
Once you have filled the wallet, fold the front closed again and screw the cap in place – this will keep the wallet closed. Now, watch your child beam with delight.
