Milk Carton Box


This is a really fun project--a milk carton box! It was super easy using Beate Johns' fantastic tutorial here: www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/milk_carton_box Just 1 piece of 7 x11" paper, some stamps and ink and ofcourse, chocolate! I found the best adhesive for a project such as this is the red double sided sticky tape in 1/4" width. If you have a scorer, lucky you! It would have come in handy with this project. With all the boxes, bags and cards I make these days, a bone folder just isn't efficient enough. However, mine has sufficed for a good long while and it was inexpensive. I stamped the images in silver embossing ink, then embossed them in silver hologram highlights powder from Stampin Up!. The hugs and kisses words are from Carolyn King's "Dr. Feelgood" set, which you can find at Gina K. Designs by clicking on the link at my "best places to shop." I filled in the X's using pink ink and a blender pen and sponged just about everything.

I hope that you are inspired to make a cute milk carton box too! ***Important*** hershey's kisses and mini bars fit perfectly inside! ....mmmmmm....
