Hi, today is Inspiration Wednesday over on the My Creative Time Blog.
I was searching for different ways to use the fabulous Milk Carton die and I came across an amazing tutorial over on the DoStamping Blog with Dawn. She shared how she combined two milk cartons together to create another fun gift box. So I wanted to see if I could create something similar with the MCT die.
I followed her tutorial by cutting out two milk cartons and then cutting off the last panel on each of them. I then cut out the window using the Fun Stitched Tag Dies. I cut up packaging I had to seal the window. Then I added the accent piece cut from the same die.
I made my side accent rectangles a little bigger than she suggests. I wanted mine to cover most of the area. I first added the little banners from the Stitched Party dies. I then added the cute little birthday birdies from the Tweet Me Stamp Set. I cut them and their little hats out using the Fun Tweet Me Dies. I colored the hats, the beaks, and feet in with Copic markers. I added the small hearts from the same die set as well.
When I put it together, the bottom tabs do not cover the whole bottom as her's did. So I just cut out a circle from the Bunch of Fun Circles dies and glued it on top. I then used my Crop-a-dile to cut two holes and tied my ribbon through them to close the box.
The tag was created using the combination of the new Fun Stitched Tag Dies and the Mini Chalkboard Tags Stamp Set. I adhered it to the bow using a Recollection's mini clothespin.
Then I added my sweet homemade cupcake in the box. Now I have a sweet way to give a birthday cupcake using the Milk Carton Die. So glad I stumbled upon her amazing tutorial with wonderful inspiration!
Thank you so much for stopping by!! Have a wonderful day!!
