Making a milk carton box without a die

Pin It
Hi all, we've all seen these cute milk carton dies for a while now but I still haven't bought one ...... so i thought id give you my quick version of this great project, not quite as small as the die but cute the same :) My daughter laughed when she seen it had popcorn in it..... a bit average but i didn't have any other treats in the house at the time so i went with what i had and tied the bird theme into it! a great little gift for someone watching their weight. You could add anything though! anyhow its still winter here and everyone likes hot popcorn! so its makes for a cute CORNY gift idea! lol I'm cracking myself up today!! anyway the pattern is below and i made the punch art decoration with the 2 step bird punch from Stampin up which you can order off me here. I used extra wings to make the leaves have a fuller look and double punched the large oval for the nest. To get the sweet treat cups (also from Stampin up ) to fit this pattern i cut some of the edging off either side then taped it in. Hope you enjoy this quick post today ...
Blessings to you

and a last thought

Isn't rude

Genuine love is gracious and honorable; it is
under the control of God-guided reason at all times;
it seeks what is right and proper;
it can do nothing but good;
it cares for others sensibilities and produces unity.
(taken from 1 Corinthians 13)

Thank you for sharing you pattern. I often bypass the dies as well, wondering how often I will use them for the cost.
I might be considered cheap but now I can buy more paper! Yea!!! :O)
