Free Printable Napoleon Dynamite 1% Milk Carton
27 April 2019
Napoleon Dynamite is celebrating its 15th Anniversary this year! It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 17, 2004, and officially started playing in movie theaters later that year on August 27. My personal experience with Napoleon Dynamite started 16 years ago, on April 24, 2003.
As a student at Brigham Young University (BYU), I studied set and costume design for theater and film. On graduation day, after receiving our diplomas, my wife and I were standing outside the Harris Fine Arts Center (HFAC) waiting for our families with one of my fellow classmates, Cory Lorenzen. All three of us were still in our caps and gowns when Cory said, “Hey, I’m working on a film this summer. Wanna work with me on it?” That film he was talking about, is now the cult classic Napoleon Dynamite! I mean, I know that graduating from college is a big deal. But I never imagined that my graduation day would have this big of an impact on my life!
Above is a picture of the Napoleon Dynamite Art Department. From the left is Cory Lorenzen (Production Designer), Jonas Sappington (Art Assistant), Jenni Nelson (Property Master), and me (Art Director). Together we were responsible for all of the locations, set dressing, and props for the film. The script called for a carton of 1% milk . . . but at the time, Gossner Foods (who donated the milk for the film) didn’t make 1% cartons. That didn’t stop Cory! He created his own 1% printable milk carton so Napoleon could deliver his now classic line to Deb.
Today I have created a printable 1% milk carton of my own! You can use them as a party favor boxes for your next family movie night or when you’re hosting your own Napoleon Dynamite 15th Anniversary Party!
The printable carton even contains a list of nutritional facts on the side . . . but instead of nutrition facts, it’s a list of Napoleon’s skills. Because, as Napoleon likes to point out, “Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills!”
Don’t forget to fill your favor boxes with your favorite milk-themed candy. I filled mine with Fun Size Milky Way bars, but you could also use Mini Cow Tails, Mini Milk Duds, Cadbury Dairy Milk Little Bars, Jans Milk Chewy Candy, Brach’s Milk Maid Royals, or Fujiya Milky Candy.
What you’ll need to make the 1% Milk Favor Box:
- Napoleon Dynamite 1% Milk Favor Box pdf
- White Cardstock
- Scissors or Craft Knife
- Bone Folder
- Single Hole Punch
- Tiny Straws
