Mini Milk Carton goes Festive

Published by under 3D projects,Big Shot,Christmas | Nov 12 2010

Oh where does the time go? Here we are barreling along towards Christmas… aren't the days just zipping by?

This weekend we are celebrating my parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary and my son's 10th birthday! We're having a family reunion at the beach and I'm also going to the Melbourne Regional training day for Stampin' Up! demonstrators…  so before I carry on the hunt for the missing bucket and spade, I just wanted to quickly stop by and share this fun project.

The Mini Milk Carton die (p155 IB&C) was a surprise birthday present I received last week, and it's soooo cute! It creates adorable itty bitty boxes with the Big Shot. These really are small! Only a couple of inches tall BUT there is a nifty little trick where you can fold your paper a couple of times just inside the cutting lines to give the box extra height. The folds can be covered by ribbon or embellishments. A bit difficult to explain, maybe I'll have to do another 'pictorial tutorial' to share here? Let me know if you're interested.

Ooh, and you can fit quite a bit in there if you just fold the top and secure with a mini library clip, rather than sealing it with adhesive.


Stamps used are from Season of Joy, and the paper is Jolly Holiday. Colours are Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive (my fave combo at the moment). The ribbon is from the Mistletoe bundle which is FREE right now with the purchase of any our special bundles.

Happy stamping and have a wonderful weekend,

    Nifty idea to fold them and hide this with ribbon to make them taller. Might have to rethink about getting this die for myself if it can be made a bit bigger, thanks for the idea!

    Hi Simone
    I'd like to know how to alter it please!  Is it just a case of folding a couple of pleats (accordian fold style) into the paper?  I have been so undecided about this die!  I think I would use it a lot once I had it (especially for small Xmas gifts) but I was surprised at how small it was.
