Mini Milk Carton

Hi there !!

Today I've made a carton for the challenge over at
Create 4 Fun. Hop on over a take a look, you'll find the template there and the carton is really easy to make.

Here's mine:

I used some pink pearl card to make the body of the carton.
The stamp is by Inkadinkado from the Patterned Pets Clear Stamp Set. I stamped the image onto black card, which I had pre-cut using a square scalloped Nestie, then embossed it using a lilac embossing powder. I used some pink Papermania adhesive gems on the corners. I made two of these panels and placed them on opposite sides of the carton.

The flowers are by Papermania and Prima, plus an odd rose from my stash. I mounted these onto the same black card which I used for my stamping. Again I made two of these and placed them on opposite sides.

I punched two holes in the top of the carton and used two ribbons, one pink and one black, to tie the carton closed.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like it.

Hi Penni, fab colour combo and I love that little doggy image. I did struggle with this carton. I couldn't print it onto my card, because my printer is allergic to anything thicker than paper!!! Then I didn't know what to cut and what to score. I had trouble to get the carton to stay square - if that makes sense.
Your looks perfect though, nice crisp folds.
