A Chilly Milk Carton

Morning everyone... Jenny here :0)

At Christmas time I like to make fun packaging for sweet treats so my son 
can give them out at the end of term to his classmates and teachers.

In my quest to find a suitable design and shape I decided to use the 
Paper Smooches Chilly Chums stamp set to decorate a milk carton
to contain Frosty Snowballs... or sugar coated chocolate balls to you and I :0)

I cut the milk carton on my cricut expression using Tags, Bags, Boxes and more 2
and then stamped the snowy sky using Lawn Fawn's Let it Snow whilst the box was still flat.

The Chilly Chums are stamped and coloured with Promarkers before cutting them out 
and sitting them in the snowy landscape... the trees are from Warm Hearts
and the sentiment from Freezy Fellas :0)

To close the box I punched two holes and then tied a ribbon through so it 
didn't haveto be torn open.

I think the chilly chums look rather cute and lend themselves quite well to
fun packaging....especially at Christmas time :0)

Thanks for looking and hope you have some crafty time this weekend.
