Mini Milk Carton - times two

Back from work this week ......heaven! ......unpacked some customer orders last night that arrived by the lovely Jim my man in the brown van, but that was it in my craft room, went out for dinner with dh and chatted about all sorts -

          I took some stampin' stuff with me to do in my hotel room during the evenings but..... I was looking forward to some stampin' well I took a couple of the clear mount sets with me BUT !!!! forgot the clear blocks.........AArgh..... I was mad at myself for doing that I had everything else and believe me I tried everything available to get a stamped image on my whisper white card but nothing was any good ........ now I know why I am a wood block fan???

I did get a chance last weekend though to have a go at making the Mini Milk Carton using the die from the Mini Catalogue, using the Big Shot.  I did a pretty in pink one and used one of the Library Clips from the Clip assortment pack in the Main Idea Book and Catalogue.  Converted one into a Bird house and it contains some mini chocolate eggs inside, can you see them?  The roof is a piece of card run through the Square Lattice embossing folder, the bird is punched from the 2 step bird punch.
