I finally got a chance to put together the 'box' part of my Valentine class and I've done a 'milk carton' - my first one ever! Oh, it was so fun to put together. I found the template on wonderful Mel Stampz blog - here's the link. I had a brain burp trying to establish which way the folds went but when I figured it out, guess what, it folded beautifully!!! The instructions aren't too clear on which way to fold so if you're wanting to try it, all the folds are mountain. I will have to make another one now to have as a teaching sample so I don't mess up when trying to teach it! I decorated it using stamps from The Stamp Barn and my new Labels 1 nestabilities (was soooo excited when they arrived in the mail last week!!). I left the top open to provide a bigger opening to the carton so you can stuff more goodies inside! I used a red binder clip and tied some matching colour ribbons on to give the finished look. I'm really happy with it so I hope it will be a fun class teaching this to the ladies who sign up for my class. I would have loved to use some MS punches and other embellishments but I am restricted by what Heather carries in her store (and Martha Stewart isn't one of them, lol!). So I think that means I'll just have to make another one and go all out on other embellishments and tools - the sky is the limit!
I hope you enjoyed the post and be sure to look up the link on Mel's blog - she has an amazing array of links and tutorials!
Hope you're all enjoying a fabulous Sunday and I hope to post again soon!
