Rose Red Mini Milk Carton Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Rose Red Mini Milk Carton Tutorial

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Rose Red Mini Milk Carton Tutorial

Oh it’s just so darling!

In the polar opposite of Monday’s video project, we’ve gone from huge to tiny in just 5 days!!

I like to make mini things, I think we all know that, and making a cutey little mini milk carton is definitely one for me!

Measuring just 1.5″ (4cm) it’s a great little bonus extra gift. We’ve got Valentine’s Day around the corner and we’ve got Easter in March this year, so these are ideal as little treat boxes to add choccies and treats too. Oooo, yummy!

But you have to laugh at me, I based the entire project around a bow. Yes, a bow. Who does that? Well, clearly me, but am I alone in it? Tell me I’m not, please!

So with the Love Blossom Embellishment bow being the focal point, I kept it simple after that.

However, my question this week, like last Friday, is which card base do you prefer? Rose Red or Whisper White….?

    Cheers Wendy

  2. Cute little boxes Sam. Love them both xo

  3. Cutesy! I do like it. Just the size for a couple of little chocolates.

    I do like the Rose Red the best. It sort of ‘pops’ more. 🙂

    This is your forte! Cx

  5. Daggi Mosler says:

    I also like the rose red more, at least to give it to women – für man the white one would be more fitting … Thanks for this cute little box!

  6. I saw those clips in the catalog and wondered what to do with them. Now I know! I love both, but maybe think the Rose Red is my fav.

  7. Very sweet, always love a milk carton box!! I like the rose red one better! tfs!

  8. Love both boxes but I like the white one better. The red one draws your eye to it more.

    I, too, will base a project around an embellishment! Take heart, you are not alone!!
    I love them both! They are both dramatic in their own way and I can see myself making lots of these.

  11. Rachel Brooks says:

    Like the red better, but, as usual, they are both lovely. I don’t know how in the world you can come up with a daily product/video. You amaze me!

  12. There are so nice ! I discovered your blog and I like it a lot . Thanks for al your inspiration !!

  13. Both are great, if I had to choose rose red

  14. They are both lovely boxes…hard to decide which I like best. The rose red does stand out more, but sometimes subtle is better! OH just make both and have fun! Yes that is what I will do! Thank you for your inspiration daily!

  15. absolutely ADORABLE!!! Love them both, but I think I prefer the Rose Red

  16. Jennifer H says:

    A box built around a bow AND only two candy dots!! My goodness you are outside your box today. Think I like the red better.

  17. Marthea W Aust says:

    Love them both, but the Rose red for a lady and the white for a guy
    Thanks for sharing

  18. I absolutely love rose red!!!

  19. So cute!
