Hello Crafty Friends,
Today has a been a restful day...the first since Winter Break began. No laundry, no shopping, no cleaning...just me and my craft goodies. Yeah!
My niece's birthday is tomorrow, so I decided to make a surprise to bring to her ice cream party. I really wanted to try these milk cartons from Tags, Bags 2 and I am glad I did.
First, I scored all the pieces on a 12 X 12 piece of heavy DCWV Winter Wonder cardstock with the Cricut scoring tool. Then I put the mat back into the Cricut to cut each shape. Super easy if you lay the mat in the same place.
Since the pieces were scored, folding the boxes were simple. The first time I tried I didn't score the lines...BIG mistake! I ended up with a bag that looks like the Lindt chocolate container.
I did not glue the bottoms, since the pieces lay within each other.
I glued the side and half of the top. I used a paper clip to hold it together, so I could have all the pieces drying at the same time.
Each milk carton is filled with marshmallows...regular and peppermint flavored.
The front is decorated with a double layered (white and blue) Spellbinders ~ Lacey Circle. I added snowflakes (Fiskars punch) to the other sides. Winter Wishes was cut from Winter Woodland.
Each top is decorated, but still easy to open and pour. I used various ribbons, buttons, gems, bells, and twine.
I have enjoyed popping by and seeing so many holiday projects. If I haven't stopped by yet...please leave me a message so I don't forget! My other niece's birthday is next week, so I need to get busy making her a card.
