Milk Carton Challenge

Flutter By Wednesday #94
Limited Supply Challenge LSC257

Ah, it feels so good to have created something this week. {grin} Even if there isn't a bit of stamping on it! haha This is a busier time of year for me than even Christmas! Teacher Appreciation Week, Room Mom stuff, Financial Statements for church, my son's birthday, Valentine Parties to plan for and on and on. It's all good stuff and I'm not complaining, but paper crafting tends to go by the wayside for me these few weeks every year.

Dawn Mercedes asked me to make a sample for her Limited Supply Challenge this week which is to make a milk carton. I followed Beate's tutorial on Splitcoast. It was the perfect excuse to pull out my brand spankin' new Scor-Pal that I ordered with Christmas money (thanks Mom & Dad!). I love how easy it was to square the paper up and score, score, score it in all the right places. {heart}

I know this is the perfect time of year to be making Valentine treat boxes, but I'm just burnt out on all things holiday right now. Any holiday! I love spring and look forward to all it brings, so that's the direction I went. I used designer paper from SU!'s Cottage Wall pack covering the front and back with dotted green and the sides with swirly razzleberry. I used SU! punches for the oval, butterfly and scalloped top. I could see doing something similar and making this a birdhouse another time.

I used a rub-on for the word 'Friend'. Clean and simple and ready to be filled with treats and gifted to a friend when the perfect occasion presents itself. {smile}

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

The scalloped roof is perfect to create the little cottage look. At first sight, I thought Ahhh, isn't that just the right touch. Very creative. Like it lots.
