Sizzix Milk Carton Bride and Groom Boxes

At the last Stamp Share I was at one of the gals had shown how she made "Bride & Groom" boxes using the 2, 4, 6, 8 box making method. Well, with this new Stampin' Up! "Milk Carton" Sizzix die cut I thought I'd give those wedding boxes a try.

These boxes are a bit smaller. Which is ok, that way you will be able to cut back on some expenses on filling them! And the best part of these is that they are SO easy to assemble. There is no measuring or cutting, it's all done for you! That makes these super quick ot put together and a BIG plus if you have a LOT of them to make.

To make these you will need the following:
Basic Black card stock
Whisper White card stock
Black brads
Half round pearl from the "Pretties Kit"
"Very Vintage" jumbo wheel
Heat & Stick Powder
Versa Mark
Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
Crystal Effects

Cut out the boxes and assemble the black one only. Fill it with what you wish to have on the inside.

Now to decorate. You will need to cut a piece of scrap white card stock about 1" x 1" square. Find the center and add the brads. Take a piece of black card stock
cut 1-1/8" x 1-9/16". Find center and make a cut down the center about 7/8" long. Fold the cut center pieces back to form the lapel, you will be forming a "V" in the center of this black piece. Tape or glue them in place. Tape or glue the white piece to the black piece. Then tape this to the milk carton. Tie a small bow using the grosgrain ribbon and tape or glue it in place.

For the white milk carton you will need to fold the scores before you emboss. Once the scores are all folded, lay the box flat and stamp the image on using Versa Mark. Sprinkle on the Heat & Stick powder and heat set it. Now fold and tape or glue the box together. Fill it with what you wish to have on the inside. Next take your Crop-a-dial and punch the largest hole you can as close to the seam as you can get without bending the carton. For the veil take a piece of tulle about 5" long, fold it and keep folding it until it's small enough to fit through the hole you made at the top of the carton. Push it through about 3/4". Open it up and glue in place the half round pearl, Crystal Effects works well with the pearls. Set it aside to dry. Once dry trim the tulle if needed. Store so the veil is pressed against the back of the milk carton so once they are displayed the back of the veil will lay fairly flat but yet be a bit fluffy.

Cute, aren't they? What bride wouldn't want these at her table?

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

So dang cute the bride and groom boxes. I am glad to see you tried the idea with the die. Do you fill them with wedding almonds? Or is that just a Greek tradition.

Adorable! I knew it was only a matter of time until someone was ingenious to think "outside the box" LOL! Great idea! I can see marketing these as favors or table markers or something! TFS!
