Thrifty Christmas: Nail Polish Carton, Gifts Under $5, Teen/Tween Gift

I saw this nail polish carton on Diane's Blog here

It's perfect for those mini-nail polish bottles that are perfect stocking stuffers and teen/tween type of gifts! (Also great for Secret Santa stuff too!). After a little tweeking from Diane's original tutorial (not all nail bottles are the same height and width) I came up with this:
Here's a quick version of the tutorial (please note these measurements may have to be tweeked to fit YOUR nail polish bottle!):
  • Cardstock measures 5 1/2" X 1 1/4"
  • Score at: 3/8", 3/4", 2 3/8" 3 1/8", 4 3/4", 5 1/8"
  • Fold
  • Put glue dot or pop dot on bottom of bottle, and place bottle in carton
  • Punch 2 small holes in the top of carton and thread ribbon through and tie off
  • Add decoration to front and/or back.
