Valentine Mini Milk Carton

I've been working on the projects for my next Thursday's Valentine stamp event  Here is a sneak peek of one of the projects that we'll be doing.   It is die cut with one of the terrific new products in the Occasions Mini Catalog, the Stampin' Up! exclusive Mini Milk Carton die.  Isn't this little thing just too cute?!  And it hold a generous treat of M&Ms, sweetheart candy, jelly beans... you get the idea.  The die will also cut Window Sheets or Vellum to make these cartons; wouldn't that be a fun idea for party or shower favors, wedding or dinner guests, Valentine or Easter giving .. your imagination can come up with no end of possibilities for decorating these or using them!


For this box I used Pretty in Pink cardstock wheeled with the I {love} Love Jumbo Wheel for the box and the small flower print from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper for the band.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes (if you don't have that set, you need to order it during Sale-A-Bration; it's indispensible!!) stamped in Real Red onto Very Vanilla, layered onto Chocolate Chip and Pretty in Pink oval punch-outs to coordinate with the Sending Love Designer Paper.

The carton is also embellished with a Real Red flower punched with the Five Petal Flower Punch and embellished with a circle punch of DSP; this is then attached with Mini Glue Dots to the top of the carton.

The other box done also in pink and embellished with a red, pink and vanilla flower print (and glittery!) band was made by my friend Connie Stewart.  Isn't it just adorable?  Thanks for the inspiration, Connie!

Way cute carton! Can you get two out of one 8-1/2 x 11" sheet of card stock?

Lisa said...

Sweet little carton! I just got mine and can't wait to play with it!

Margaret Raburn said...

Amy, yes you can get two dies out of one sheet and still have a 1 1/2 x 11" strip left for punches, etc. It's a cool die!

These are so cute! Love that wheel!

Raquel said...

These are too cute!!! Do you know if that milk carton die fits in a cuttlebug???

Lisa Bohler said...

So absolutely adorable! Those are fantastic!

Margaret Raburn said...

I haven't actually used it in a Cuttlebug but it does "roll" through one. It is the same width as a Bigz die but a little longer, like 8 5/8". You would just have to get the right "sandwich" of cutting plates and the Crease Pad because this die has score lines in it.
