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.
