wedding milk cartons by Jo Hope...and I just had to make it, of course! I'd have to say...I wasn't going to purchase the milk carton die and now I'm gonna have to own one because I don't think my client and friend will let me keep her die forever, LOL!!! Anyways, these were fun to make :)
I combined the Bride and Groom onto one box. I made 2 different boxes so that I can show the sample of it side by side and I can play with different colors. Nice excuse, huh?
Products used: Big Shot Machine, Milk Carton Die, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, 5 Petal Punch, My Way Punch, SU Texturz Templates, Organza Ribbon, 1/4 Ribbons in Tempting Turquoise and Pretty in Pink, Silver brads, Rhinestones, Sticky Strip, Snail Adhesive and Mini Glue Dots.

I had so much fun making these flowers. One of my friends let me pick out some fabric from her collection, so pretty, huh? Thanks Adrienne! I love having these around, they make a great, quick and easy gift. I donated 20 of them to my church for Mother's Day and they all loved it! If you don't have the Big Shot machine yet, here's a great reason to. Ask me for a special package.
Here's a great video tutorial on how to make them. Thanks to Angie Kennedy for making this video.

The Soggy Stamper. It is super easy and fun to make! I changed it up a bit. I used a 4x4 paper Designer Series Paper and just placed it so that it doesn't cut 2 of the petals. This saves paper and I don't think you need a pocket on both sides. I used the Animal Crackers stamp set and used the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 Circle Punches and the Scallop Circle Punch. I adhered the petal together with Tombow glue. I love how it dries so quickly! Did you know this can be a repositional glue? I use it to convert some of my old wood mounted stamps so that I can use it as a clear mounted stamp. Presto, it is done! I put Dimensionals on the stamped imaged to give it a lift and it worked out perfectly. I made one each for my husband and son :)

I had a booth at my son's school, Rosa Parks Elementary. I sold Italian Charm Link bracelets, handmade gifts and Mother's Day cards/greeting cards. Here's my raffle prize: a $20 gift certificate for Stampin' Up! products/workshops and a Flower Pin/Clip in a Decorated Gable Box.
