My Puppy Valentine???

When my daughter saw the little Valentine Milk Carton Carrier I put together in this post, she fell in LOVE with it. She said, "These would be fun to make for ALL my friend for Valentine's Day! Maybe we should make some ..." WE??? She came down and looked at paper and such ... did a lot of staring ... then said she was tired and went to bed!! (Hehehehe!! We actually do a LOT of crafting together, but she has had a nasty cold/cough thing this week which has made her more tired than teenagers typically are!).

Anywho ... since her friend, Emma, has FOUR doggies at the moment, she thought it would be really great if "we" made her one with a doggie theme. Which was pretty danged easy since my daughter seems to rope me into buying doggie/pet-themed paper, brads, stamps, etc., ALL THE TIME!! Not that "we" ever MAKE much with it!! But "we" HAVE it, and that is really the point anyway, right???

So here is the little milk carton carrier "Valentine" for doggies that I came up with. Woof!!! LOVE the cute little dog bone paper clips, don't you?? Now I just gotta go find some tiny little doggie treats to put inside! Smiley from

I guess "we" may be making a kitty-themed one, as well as possibly a "safari" theme and something a little "spring-y" ... "we" love making these, though, so it shouldn't be too difficult!!!

I have been informed by many of you "in the know" that this tiny version of milk carton carrier found its origins on Becky Roberts blog - Inking Idaho. I have seen many of these carriers popping up all around the past few years, but I would have to admit that she ROCKED it for the little bitty milk carton die, that's for sure!!

Stamps: Bow Wow (retired Stampin' Up)
Paper: Pets Stack (DCWV), Baja Breeze (SU), Very Vanilla (SU), Deep Chocolate (PTI)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Bigz Mini Milk Carton die, large and small oval punches, corner rounder punch, 1" and 3/4" circle punches, Perfect Polka Dots textured impression folder, The Paper Studio dog paw brad, dog bone paper clips by Creative Impressions, small gingham brown/cream ribbon (Offray), large gingham brown/cream ribbon (unknown), pop-up glue dots
