Milk Carton Upcycled Into MILKFLOWER Lampshade

The MilkShell was one of the first lampshades I made using plastic milk cartons. Since that design I’ve made the ‘MilkShell2‘ and now, finally, ‘MilkFlower‘. This design is also made out of leftovers from producing other upcycle lamshades.
For this design, like the original MilkShell, I used the top part, but in such a way that you wouldn’t recognize the milk carton right away. And I hope I succeeded in doing so. MilkFlower is bigger than its predecessor, the MilkShell2. This lampshade is 65 cm. diameter.
