Mini Milk Cartons

I know that I've made the milk cartons before ~ actually they are one of my favorites to make ~ but these are just a little different.  These are mini milk cartons.  Betty brought over a little carton that she had juice in once and said that she'd like to have some of those made up if I could make a template.  So I thought that was easy enough.  WRONG!  I tried to make the template but when I took the carton apart it was just not working for me.  Then I thought "dummy!  Just take the template that you have and just make it smaller!"  Really?  Sometimes I scare myself - I just know that Danielle uses my hair brush sometimes Ü

So that's what I did.  I just "mini"mized it...
Adorable huh?  I used Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky to make the base cartons.  I also added a little handle to it and attached it with eyelets.  I stamped the flowers from my Fresh Fillers set with Old Olive and Ballet Blue inks then I sponged some Close to Cocoa around it to give it a "weathered" look. 

I made the "flower" from some Georgia Peach DP and used my scallop circle and small oval punches and added a sucker to it for the flower bud and I was complete. 

Here is a close up of the "flower".

These are really fun to make - I've always liked making the milk cartons.  Now the mini ones are so adorable I just might make those, and the handle is just adorable too!  Maybe since we really don't get too many tick or treaters I can make these for Halloween.  I would of loved it if Danielle brought one of these home in her trick or treating years, and yes - I would of taken candy from my child Ü  Ok, not the candy just the container...

I have company coming tomorrow to craft.  A friend who I met on line years ago and she stopped by last time she was thru Kentucky - well this time she mentioned stopping again and I thought instead of going to lunch to have her over to craft for a while.  So that's what I will be doing tomorrow.  I will have pictures on Friday to show you. 

And on another note:  I want to say Happy Anniversary to my wonderful hubby.  These past few years have been trying on us but we are still here and I love you very much!

Happy crafting and I'll see you Friday!!
