Stampin’ Up! Gorgeous Grunge Flat Topped Milk Carton Tutorial
As you know, I’m a crafter that likes to share honesty. That could be leaving bloopers in or confessing to when a project has gone wrong. And in today’s video, I share the original sample I made and where the ribboning went a little wrong and didn’t give me the flat top that I was aiming for.
I wanted to make a milk carton style box, but I wanted a shorter top for it, and thus, my measurements were set to do that. But, when I tied with ribbon, it sort of popped itself up again and didn’t give me the flattened look that I was after.
(You can see the difference in the photo above!)
So if you’re recreating this project too, please learn from my mistake!
And because pretty much all our Designer Series Paper has sold out, aside from the Spring range and the Typeset Paper, I decided to create a sort of pattern of my own.
I hope you enjoy the video, and how it turns out, in the end….
