Special Treat: Milk Carton Tutorial

I want to share with you how I created this adorable milk carton!

I used the Crafter's Companion Ultimate Tool along with the Special Treat Embossing Board.  I embossed and cut out two identical sides of the carton.

Then I adhered them together using a extra strong tape runner.

Then I folded and adhered the sides together.

I cut a 2.125 x 2.125 square for the bottom piece and adhered it.

Since it's all embossed right on the board, I just pinched the top together and it was done! Awesome!

I wanted to add something fun to the front of the carton, so I stamped this label image from Stamp It Australia: French Travels and then inked it up with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

Then I stamped this beautiful flower from Stamp It Australia: Floral Fancies using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I colored it in with Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils (013, 024, 029) and the Blending Solution and paper stumps.

To soften it up, I added the same Distress Ink to the flower before adhering it to the carton.

I also added some ink to the edges of the carton, just to give it more of a distressed feel.  Here is the finished piece again:
