Spellbinders Bunny Hop Schedule:
Today I will be showcasing s4-236 Baby Border Petite and S4-306 Wonky Rectangle die templates which work wonders together when designing cute Baby Shower favors. Remember the days when the milk man would drop of your cartons of milk on the front porch? There’s nothing like a sweet treat in a great container!
I first created four milk cartons out of cardstock and pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye (Lush) and Crate Paper (Emma’s Shoppe). I googled paper craft milk cartons and downloaded a template from the internet. After scoring the milk carton template, I taped down a S4-306 Wonky Rectangle #2 (#1 being the smallest.) Then I ran the entire piece through the Grand Calibur; first cutting and then embossing it. Next I adhered a piece of acetate to the inside in order to create a window.
To create the frame for the window, I used the same Wonky Rectangle die template and taped it on to pattern paper. By placing the next size down (#1) inside I was able to create a frame after cutting and embossing it.
After folding the carton template and adding pattern paper, I cut and embossed a S4-293 Lacey Circles #1. Then I inked the edges with Clearsnap Colorbox Chestnut Roan chalk ink and adhered it to the carton with 3D Foam Dots SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES by 3L . The little teddy bear was the negative pieces I used from the inside of the s4-236 Baby Border Petite die template. I added the finishing touch with a bow and a pearl!
Next, I scored the Milk Crate template and inked the edges and added pattern paper. To create the word BABY, I adhered a piece of Sookwang adhesive to some scrap cardstock and placed s4-236 Baby Border Petite die template on it.
Then I cut the word Baby out of the border and peeled off the backing of the tape. I taped green colored cardstock behind to make the word pop. After that I added glitter to the sticky side of the die template. Lastly, I used foam dots to place it on the front and then I added my bow and button to the top.
