Mini Milk Carton and tote

IMG_1832

Yesterday as I browsed for some ideas for my workshop last night, I found this adorable milk carton box by Becky Roberts.

So Tasha and I made one for my hostess, Jean!

Thanks Jean for a great party.

Click on Becky’s name above for the link to her post and the pattern.  It uses the stamp set Friends 24-7 and the milk carton die for the big shot.  Other things we used: Baja Breeze CS, Crumb Cake CS, Mini vintage tags, 2 way glue pen and glitter, sticky strip (for putting ribbon around the edge), and I stapled my top together.

Also, here’s the card I came up with for the make and take:

I am just loving this stamp set, in fact, next month, it will be the subject of a special class on March 19th.  Everything is stamped in Basic black—I finally broke down and bought a new Black pad after all these years—I’m in love, it stamps so nice.

Then we put pastels on using  a q-tip and sprayed with a light spray of aerosol hairspray to set the chalk.  Check out the bling on the little girls pony tail:  I learned from one of my fellow-demonstrators,  how to color our rhinestones with a sharpie pen—I used black but you can use any color to make the color rhinestone that you want!  Isn’t that the coolest.

I hope that you have fun stamping today.
