Milk Carton Kit

Last night I was playing around with my new mini milk carton Sizzix die and ended up with this...Isn't it cute?
Now all I need to do is embellish it when I have an occasion to give it away.

The milk cartons measure about 1 1/2" wide and 3" tall, and the mini box that I made can hold four of these little cuties...
Instead of using ribbon to close them, I thought I'd use some mini library clips. That way it will be easier for the recipient to open up.
You can even open them up like a "real" milk carton - too cute!
Since I'm not doing at-home workshops at the moment, I thought I'd make up some kits and put them in my Etsy shop. That way you can make one of your own and embellish it anyway you like!
Included in the kit are:
* 4 pre-cut and pre-scored mini milk cartons (Melon Mambo cardstock)

* 4 mini library clips (black, silver or antique brass)

* 1 pre-cut and pre-scored box base (black cardstock)

* 4 strips of patterned paper for sides of box (Melon Mambo polka-dot)

* 1 pre-cut and pre-scored handle

* 2 ring shaped frames for handle (Melon Mambo cardstock)

* Full color instruction sheet with photos

You get all of the kit contents shipped to you for only $5! I currently have 5 kits available, but if there's enough interest, I'll add more.
If you're interested, be sure to check out my Etsy shop - thanks!

Tommorrow will be a busy day - Hambo is having their weekly "One & Done" auction and Pink Cat Studio is having a new digital release!
Thanks for stopping by.
