Egg-cellent Cartons

Aren't these milk cartons cute!? I have an upcoming class where we will be playing with the NEW Mini Milk Carton Bigz Die available in the Occasions Mini as well as items from the Egg-cellent Eggs Kit (also in the Occasions Mini). You can also view the little birdhouse I kreated using this cute little die by scrolling down to my previous post.
Onto this project... love how it turned out! Its just screaming SPRING to me :)
* Mini Milk Cartons were run through the Big Shot with Orchid Opulence and Pretty in Pink cardstock
* Scribbles and Swirls Sizzlit was run through the Big Shot with Certainly Celery to kreate my 'stems' for eack flower bunch
* After my Mini Milk Cartons were assembled, with Sticky Strip for the maximum hold, I embellished each with the Scribbles and Swirls 'stem' and cute little flowers from the Egg-cellent Eggs Kit. Each flower given a little center bling with self adhesive rhinestones in the pack. Cool!!
* Ran some Orchid Opulence and Pretty in Pink through the Big Shot with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit (again, from the Occasions Mini - this catty has it going on :) !!
* Adhered a wing with a mini glue dot to give it an 'in flight' feel. Bodices adorned with some more tiny rhinestones from the kit.


The Tote - cute right?!













Isn't the community of stampin'/craftin' 'sistas' the best?! This tote template was kreated by Wanda from My Creative Corner which she so generously gave to me. Thanks so much Wanda!!
* I followed her direction with a piece of So Saffron cardstock. I'm waiting to hear from her if it is OK that I share her directions - I know you all are wanting to make this. :) If I get the OK, I will be sure to post them.
* Finished embellishing, again using all items from the Egg-cellent Eggs Kit.
HINT: If you kreate 2 of these totes, you can adhere them back to back to hold 4 of these adorable cartons. SO cute right???
