Mini Milk Carton from Occasions Mini Catalog

Hi there!  I've made another of these Mini Milk Cartons.  They are so easy and fun to make, and so cute.  They can be "dressed up" in so many ways and filled with treats, trinkets or tiny exciting gifts!  What fun!

Do you ever have trouble coming up with a project or design?  One way to get over the hurdle of not "feeling the mojo" is to have an inspiration book.  Do you have one?  Do you have a Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog?  Well then, you DO have an inspiration book!  There are literally hundreds of full-color pictures of artisan projects in that book!  Just pick one and make it!  Now you may not have everything used in the sample but you can substitute something you do have:  different stamp set, colors of cardstock, embellishments... just use the picture as a "jumping off place" to kick start your creativity!  Oh, and if you want to see the list of stamping supplies used for any project in any of the Stampin' Up! catalogs, just click here and then bookmark this web page for future reference.

This milk carton was copied from page 23 of the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I duplicated almost everything about it except that I didn't have the element from the Eggcellent Eggs Kit so I just substituted some Designer Series Paper in the same celery color.  I wanted to show you how easy it is to use the catalog samples for inspiration when you're "mojo" has temporarily gone on vacation {lol!} and you want/need to make a handstamped item.  These are simple and easily duplicated whether you need one or two dozen!

Stamps:  Eggcoutrements
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue
Paper:  Certainly Celery DSP; Pretty in Pink, Whisper White cardstock
Accessories:  Mini Library Clip, Bashful Blue grosgrain ribbon, 1" Circle Punch, Stampin' Up! Bigz L Mini Milk Carton Die #117310.

Thankfully our power has not gone out in this awful ice storm we've been experiencing here in Oklahoma City area.  It changed to snow and after two days is finally letting up this evening!  I hope wherever you are that you are able to be warm and safe!

Happy Stamping!
