Introducing the Mini Milk Carton!

Good morning!

Stampin' Up! has a new Bigz die, actually what they call a "Bigz L".. the Mini Milk Carton.  The Bigz L dies are a little longer than the Bigz dies, so you can get a little bigger die-cut, yet still use the standard cutting pads.  As with all dies with score lines though, I'd recommend using a standard crease pad instead of the top cutting pad.  It helps you create nice, defined score lines!

Here's one I made last night, just a simple yet pretty milk carton!

There are butterflies all around the milk carton.  Such a beautiful touch, yet so simple to make!  Putting together the milk carton itself was a breeze.  You can keep it closed at the top while making the goodies inside easily accessible by using a Mini Library Clip.  The finished milk carton is approximately 3-1/8" tall, and 1-5/8" across one side.  From the base to the top of the side area (not including the part that opens.. up to the "spout"), it is 2" tall.  It's just darling for a cute little box.  And since it's so mini, just think.. you don't have to put much in there to fill it up, eh?  Filling treat boxes can be costly!

That beautiful Designer Series Paper you see is from the Sending Love Specialty pack.  The flowers are so gorgeously glittery!

Hope you like the box!  I am so torn now, because I can't decide which box to use for my wedding favors!  It's a toss up between the Fancy Favor box and this Mini Milk Carton.  I'm leaning a lot towards the Mini Milk Carton, but what do you all think?

Butterfly Mini Milk Carton:  Chocolate Chip, Kraft, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, and Bashful Blue cardstock; Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper; Welcome Neighbor Designer Series Paper pad (for some of the butterflies); Whisper White organza ribbon; Linen Thread; Pewter clip from the Mini Library Clips pack; Beautiful Wings Embosslits die; Mini Milk Carton Bigz L die


  1. Wow! That is beautiful! The possibilities could be endless. you could make a box for every event/holiday that requires giving away loot! I'm very tempted....

  2. Wow Melissa I would definatly pick the mini milk cartons!


I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.. it makes my day!
