Milk Cartons

I wanted to spend a day at home today, but of course that didn't happen.

We had to go and get groceries. Hubby made homemade meatballs and spaghetti sauce.

We went to visit Hubby's dad today but he was out.

I was looking at Dawns stamping thoughts and Stampin' Up has a new die cut that looks like a milk carton. It is so cute. It costs about 45.00. I can't justify spending that much on a die that I may use half a dozen times, now if you were going to use it for party favours or something then I would get it.

As I said before I don't do anything the easy way. So I came up with my own pattern. Well actually I came up with 4 different patterns.

My favourite one is the tall skinny one and the teal one. Of course I played so I didn't copy the patterns I came up with but I could if You really want me to, teehee.

Dawn put the mini paper clips on hers. I had some I got from Staples for my office work.

You could also glue the one side closed or both sides actually.

You could also punch a hole in the top corner and tie a string and put a tag on it.

Here is a close up of the ones I like the most.

I was just playing around with these tonight, so they are just made with my scraps.

So I was playing around with these cuties as I watched my shows. Hoarders, Intervention and Paranormal State. House wasn't on tonight. It makes me upset when I like a show and it is hardly on. I love House.

Hope you all had a good Monday
