Got milk carton?

I admit, I used that line once before, almost, but this die-cut carton begs for it!  For this camp project, we kept the top closed with a little topper made from a scalloped circle.  Ribbon threaded through holes in the topper and the milk carton keep the goodies inside.  Springtime kisses — yum!

This March camp project will be used on my Easter table as favors.  Instead of the little basket tag, I’ll make initial tags so the favors will double as seating “assignments.”  (Or am I the only one who has guests ask, “Where should I sit?”  At my SIL’s table, we spouses and siblings always, always take the same places.)

This Milk Carton Die is back-ordered until next week, sorry to say.  The good news is that I’m nearly certain that it will be available after the Occasions Mini Catalog expires at the end of April and, hopefully, in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog that will begin July 1.

This is another project that is best assembled using Multi Purpose Adhesive or sticky strip.  There is so much tension on these pieces (i.e., they want to come unsprung), that you need really strong adhesive.  Even the double band needs something extra, at least at the ends.  The great thing about this die is that it only requires 1/2 sheet of card stock!  Assembly is quick, and embellishment is totally fun.  A friend is considering making 200+ of these for her son’s wedding ….
