Love Your Friends





Against my better judgment and despite my limited free time, I joined a Stampin' Up! Only stamper swap again. Soooo here is my first installment for this round. Valentine's is for spreading the love to friends, family and significant others. So I wanted to create something for a friend on Valentine's Day. I'm totally loving the Mini-Milk Carton die from Stampin' Up!! My early birthday present from hubby.

All SU supplies:
Mini Milk Carton die exclusive to Stampin’ Up!
Real Red and Pretty In Pink card stock
LOVE jumbo wheel (from Mini Occasions) w/ Red Craft Ink
Vintage Vogue set for "friend" 'sentiment embossed white and carefully cut out
Lovely bird from Always set embossed in white with heart from Three Hearts Punch in his mouth.
for pink polka dot paper, used Tea Party designer paper
Circle Scallop Punch for tops of milk cartons

Created a little holder by cutting 2 squares from Real Red card stock measuring 3-1/2” x 3-1/2”. Score each 7/8” on each side. Snip score marks on only two sides of squares and fold up and adhere corners to create little box base.

For handle cut 2 strips of Real Red 5-1/4” X 3-1/2”. Punch holes for handle and glue together. Attach little boxes to either side and add strip of Designer Paper around base.

Decorate as desired and give away!! You get what you give. So give freely.

What do you think??? Is this something you would like to receive??

What are you giving away for Valentine’s Day??? Link me up!
