Milk Cartons.....

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone!
How's your week going? Good So far?
Mine is busy... busy... So for today's
post I have something simple and crafty
and I didn't use my Cricut... (WHAT???)
Yes.... I recently got a cute Sizzix Die
from my Stampin' Up party... Hey it was FREE....
I LOVE free products! :o)  So I decided to
try it out and make something cute as a gift
for Easter.... Here ya go...

Now I will say... I do have the Cut file for a Milk Carton
but like I said... I got this for free so I decided to
make a couple of quick Cartons...
I did use my Cuttlebug to cut the die out..

Card Stock, Bird Punch - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - (Scraps) 3 bugs in a Rug
Daisy Punch - Martha Stewart
Bling - Bazzill

Here is a side view to show that I popped up the
birds wing and to show that I used a Brad to
seal the top of the carton....

Card Stock - Bo Bunny Dots
Designer Paper, Ribbon, Glitter Brad - Stampin' Up
Flower Punches - EK Success

I used a glue dot to hold the flowers in place
then I just kind of pushed the flowers forward to
make them stand out a little more... :o)
 They both look very Spring/Easter Like and I put
Hershey's kiss inside of them and plan to
give them to my sons teachers.... I think
they will like them... :o) well thanks for stopping
by and taking a look... I'll see ya tomorrow!
Have an AWESOME Day!!!

They are both so cute! Is the cut file for the cricut or one of the other brands? (SVG or MTC) which I don't have.
