Mini Milk Carton

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Here’s another project using the Mini Milk Carton die. I used a window sheet from the retired Night & Day Speciality paper from the 2009-2010 Holiday Mini catalog. The window sheet is thick so you should use a bone folder to fold on the score lines.

I used Sticky Strip to adhere the milk carton but it wouldn’t hold the back of the carton closed (behind the flower), so I used a brad to close it. I adhered the Sweet Pea stitched felt flower with glue dots, filled the carton with pink and green Skittles, and there you have it, a very simple but cute project.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great long weekend, and have fun stampin’ and creatin’!
