Friday Die Day

Hello friends

This Friday Die Day continues the theme of Marisa Job's designs for
Spellbinders and this is More Than Milk Carton.

Six die templates in the set and the approximate measurements are:

Base: 6.80 x 5.00 in
Large Rectangle: 1.35 x 2.35 in
Med Rectangle: 1.15 x 2.10 in
Small Rectangle: 0.75 x 1.35 in
Triangle: 1.15 x 0.70 in
Bar: 1.35 x 0.15 in

This is how they look cut/embossed.

I've die cut from cream card using the main carton/box die.
Once embossed the fold lines are nice and clear.
Using the large rectangle die I've chosen patterned paper -
die cut 4 pieces and affixed those in place.
Using the smallest rectangle die cut 2 pieces and affixed them as shown.

Fold and glue the base tabs to create the bottom of the carton.

For the top, you have already folded along the score lines, indent the side pieces,
align and close the top, you could use a peg and/or punch to secure with ribbon/twine.

I kept it very simple by just adding a die cut heart.

These are fun to make and by my chocolate calculations you could
fit 3-4.  It's a diddy carton not a full pint!

More Than Milk Carton is available along with
other Marisa Job designs - all very cute and lovely.

Wishing you all a brilliant weekend,
I'm doing last minute crafting - lots of demos for shows next week.
Brhhh it's still very very cold out there!

Take care friends.

  11. Hi Christine
    A tad late today, but love the carton (should be called Christine's Milk Chocolate Carton) and I think I have those gorgeous papers somewhere in my stash. You're just given me a great idea of how to use them. I probably saved them because they were too nice to use.
