Milk Carton Box

I was feeling adventurous today. I decided to go through the resources on SCS and pick a project I've never done before. I opted for the Milk Carton Box. I started with my piece of Taken with Teal cardstock, which was cut and scored according to these directions. I stamped the leaf image from Always with Taken with Teal on my Taken with Teal box. After assembly I took a strip of Whisper White which I stamped with flower images from Always in Ruby Red and Taken with Teal and wrapped it around my box. I also tied a piece of 1/4" Whisper White grosgrain ribbon around the box. I inked up a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Versamark and embossed 3 coats of silver and stamped it with another stamp from Always. This is called the Faux Metal technique. I punched it out with my 1 1/4" Circle Punch and layered it on a Ruby Red Scallop. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch a hole in the scallop and adhered it to my ribbon with a piece of silver cord. Now, to find some treats to put in it........................

this looks like an interesting project - and I'm sure easier to get into than a real milk carton!
