LOVE This Die Cut!!!

Oh. My. STINKIN'. GOSH!!! (Sorry for the Utah swear words, friends, but I just could not help myself!!)

I have been dyyyyyyying to get my hands on this adorably-darling milk carton die cut ever since I spied the little milk carton carrier on someone's blog (I don't really know WHO to give credit for on this, 'cause I have been seeing these all over the place!). Ain't this just the CUTEST thing EVER????

I have to apologize for using RETIRED designer paper on this, too! I am really loving the "Sending Love" Valentine's paper that SU has out right now, but I have used it and used it and USED it and wanted to try something different. This paper is actually from the Fall Mini catalog and is called "Night and Day" .... isn't it just GAWJUS???? I wish I had bought several packages of it before it sailed off into the sunset ... sigh ...

Anywho ... I think I discovered something semi-brilliant!! See??? Don'tcha just LOVE how the Embosslits Heart die makes a PERFECT border on this little milk carton carrier??? It fits EXACTLY around the edges of this baby!!! I just folded the corner ones down the middle and wrapped 'em around the corners. VOILA!! I used pop-up glue dots on the middle hearts around the box so that they would, well ... pop up!!! LOVE it!!

And what, pray tell, would one PUT in such adorably-darling (said that already, didn't I???) little bitty milk cartons??? Glad you asked!! Smiley from Each one has something delicious in it ... dark chocolate Dove hearts, M&M's, chocolate kisses, and, of course, the obligatory Conversation Heart candies. YUMMO!!! How in the HECK (sorry 'bout the swearing again!) am I gonna keep my lips off of THESE???

Love the mini milk cartons, I was so hoping that it would be a tutorial. So it is a bigz die cut. I guess that will go on my want list. But yours is so cute. Love black and red together. And your hearts are gorgeous.
