Birdhouse Tea Light Holder-DIY Mini Milk Carton

 

Spring is already in full bloom where I am and in fact, it is already getting hot over here.  I know some of you are still experiencing snow and hoping that it’ll be over soon.   Maybe crafting is the best way to deal with snow days.  So here is a little cute project that I hope will cheer you all up.

I don’t have the mini milk carton die from Stampin Up.  I saw this tutorial by Sam of PootlesPapercraft and I was just so thrilled since I didn’t have to purchase the die to make these boxes. She made hers as a treat holder but I wanted mine to look like a bird house and make it as a home decor.  So I added the roof, and the tea light.  Thank you Sam for this inspiration and for giving us the measurements.  I tried to make this video as short as possible so some of the boring scenes have been fast-forwarded for your benefit.
