Good Morning! Today's blogger's challenge is to use a die cut or punch in your project.
I am IN LOVE with the new mini milk carton. I took this to a mini workshop (in and out in an hour) last night and the girls (who had never stamped before) were all intrigued by the big shot machine.
First ~ we cut the boxes and started to fold back and forth on all the lines. This is important so the box wont "round out" when you're trying to put it together. Before I got there I cut some strips of scrap paper and we used it to punch some shapes (the heart) is from the three heart punch, and the little flower came from that 3 flower punch.. (that sounded funny).. Anyway. we used tombo multipurpose adhesive to put them together.
The tag is also a punch! the teeny tiny punched shape, was very easy to stamp on both sides, looking through the clear block on my stamp! (so fun). and then I poked a hole in the top and used some linnen thread tied onto the tag. We used mini clips to keep the top closed and I just "captured" the linen thread with that.
Then, we filled them with about 7 hershey kisses. The size of this box is misleading by the photos. Standing up, this box holds about 3 mini reese's peanut butter cups, standing on top of one another. It is ever so cute.
I'm thinking it would be fun to make an old fashioned style holder for the containers. I still get my milk (from time to time) from the oldest working dairy farm in the US, shaw farm in Dracut MA. I have a wire carrier when I go and get my milk (in the glass bottles). I think this little milk carton needs some type of carrier... i'll be working on that this week! :)
To get a better idea of the size, here is a regular sized card, propped up behind the milk carton. Anyway, I am happy to share this quick and cute little project with you and hope you have time to stamp something fun today!
