Milk Carton Sizzix Die Gift Box

Ok, I know it doesn't look like a milk carton!  I cut the top part off because I only wanted the bottom part.  I wasn't in the mood to make a box myself so I thought this die would be perfect for what I wanted to achieve and it was!  It saved me from measuring scoring and clipping!!  Gotta LOVE that!

I cut this out of white card stock using the Milk Carton die.  I cut the die just above the score line at the top.  The Scallop Edge border punch has a little piece in it that takes up about 1/4" on the edge when you use it.  That part had just a little bit of score on it but it was cut off so you won't see any lines at the top!!

I need to make a bunch of these so I wanted to keep it simple.  I tied a red satin ribbon around the box and I added 3 hearts.  Two are from Real Red card stock and the other is from the Real Red decorative paper pack.  You can decorate these up a lot more but like I said I needed to make a bunch of them and didn't have a lot of time to embellish them more than I did.

When I was done I filled it with those candy conversation hearts. I just used a regular sandwich bag.  I had to adjust the contents, I filled the bag too full the first time.  Once the amount was adequate in the bag I twisted the bag and taped it. I cut off the excess bag at the end and then put that end in the box first. 

This is a fun project for the kids to help with for their class or for the teacher.  They make great co-worker gifts too!  It's a fun Make n Take and it didn't take long at all to do.  I think that the part that took the longest in this little project was the candies.  Oh and trust me, I didn't eat a single one!  YUCK!  Aren't they just dried powdered sugar?  LOL

Have fun making them!
Thank you SO much for visiting,
