Milk & Eggs...

Easter Milk Carton Close Up

Happy Good Friday!  Today I'm travelling across to see my side of the family to deliver these Easter treats to my nieces and nephews. I like to create something every year for them and although I'm sure that they're waaaaaay more interested in the contents of the items I whip up for them (mini chocolate eggs this year), I still like to create them. :)

So what is it this year for my lovely nieces and nephews? Milk cartons! Nope, there's no real link to Easter with milk cartons but I love the shape of them so that's what we're going with:

Easter Carton 2a
Apologies about the total over expsoure in these two pictures - it's that darn sunshine. Small price to pay for happy sunny days though, right? ;)

Easter Carton 1a
This year's containers were so easy to create thanks to using my Cricut Mini. I simply cut the the milk carton from various sheets of this lovely paper collection, Splendid Sunshine, from Echo Park Paper Co using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2 digital cartridge. I think this patterned paper is pretty fitting for Easter with it's springtime vibe. :)

Easter Carton 5

You may notice that the photo props (Cadbury's Mini Eggs) deplete as the pictures continue. What can I say? They just disappeared somehow! ;P

Easter Carton 6

To secure these sweet cartons, I added some tape inside the top flaps. Twine didn't hold it secure enough to prevent me or my guy from breaking into them for my liking.

Easter Carton 7

After safely securing the tops with tape, each carton was decorated with Doodlebug twine, and a die-cut tag and stamped sentiment from Clearly Besotted Stamps' Tag Along stamp set and die collection. Oh, and a mini peg too - I just couldn't resist! ;)

Easter Carton 10

Here's hoping that these cartons surviving their transit today! Have a fabulous Friday, whether you celebrate Good Friday or not, and a wonderful weekend (bank holiday here we come! - woop woop!)

Thank you so much for visiting today!

These are absolutely adorable in every way! Perfect choice of papers, *great* props (it -is- funny how props go missing isn't it?) and the tags and pegs are a wonderful finishing touch. My only dismay is there's no die for this, waah!
