MINI MILK CARTON "BIRDHOUSE"
One of the new products that Stampin' Up! is offering in the "Occasions" mini catalog is the Mini Milk Carton die, which I have already loved. I've designed mini milk cartons with it and also a coffee pot. Today's design is a birdhouse, although the idea wasn't born in my head. I think it was Janet Wakeland who shared a picture of this die used to create a birdhouse. I didn't do too much in the way of decorating this project, but I used two other brand new Stampin' Up! products . . . the Scallop Trim Border punch, and the Two Step Bird punch. There is but one flaw with this project, and it happens to be a big one . . . I didn't leave a way to get into the box without tearing out the bottom or top. I might need to just punch a hole in the top, thread some cord through it, and call it an ornament.
