Holiday Milk Carton

IMG_1450The Stampin’ Up Milk Carton die makes an adorable container for candies and other little gifts.  This box can be used any time during the year, but is especially cute for Christmas.  I textured this carton with a texturz plate as an embossing folder would have taken out the score lines from the die.  The bird and border were punches from a scrap piece of Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper.  Although the top of the box could have been partly closed with an open spout, I preferred to simply close the top with a library clip.  This will allow the recipient to reuse the box.  Although it is not viewable, there is a “to from” tag hanging from the side of the carton.

IMG_1454These are the 3 holiday milk cartons I made today.  Each features a library clip closure in a different color.  The “dec. 25” carton has striped paper in olive, red and vanilla decorating the sides and a dainty little bow on the top.  We will be making these cute cartons at our Dec 3rd and 4th Tags and More Stamp Camp.  This will be an “embellish as you wish” project.  Don’t forget to let me know if you’re coming.  Check in tomorrow for another Stamp Camp idea.
