Occasions Mini

Good morning! Goodness, creating something for you today has been difficult! :D I'm sure you don't want to see anything Christmas - although you haven't come CLOSE to seeing everything we created last year! :D And every time I tried to start a card, I'd think, "This is a great design for an upcoming class!"

SO! :D You're getting this mini treat: it's the new mini milk carton die from the Occasions Mini!

Isn't it cute?!?!? The way the photo's showing up on my screen, it's the EXACT size of the milk carton! :) I put 8 Hershey's Kisses in it, but you could do more. So, I guess, it's more of a milk CHOCOLATE carton! :D

The card stock is Melon Mambo, because I happened to have a sheet of it out. :D The DSP is also from the Occasions Mini, SENDING LOVE (item #117153). It's got glitter embossed on one side of each two-sided design! Glitter is SO hard to see on scans and pictures - it's FRUSTRATING! On this strip, it's on the top partial flowers, every other one. Can you see it? I LOVE this paper! And for those of you who don't like glitter (you KNOW who you are!:D), it doesn't come off, no matter how hard you rub your hand across it. There's some really fun, girlie paper here, moms!!!

The clip on top is to hold the box closed; I didn't seal it like a normal carton, because then you couldn't get the treats out! :) Those clips are from the Idea Book & Catalog, and are absolutely PERFECT for this use!!! (Overlooked them? They're on page 179!

OK, I'm off - I have a Hostess Club party tomorrow night, and I can't WAIT to show them what we're going to do - but I also have to clean up the studio, and put the new plastic covering on the table. :D I don't wanna! I want to PLAY - but playing sure makes messes.... :D

Have a wonderful day! Be sure to take the time to STAMP something!!!!! And don't forget to leave me a comment on yesterday's post to enter to win BLOG CANDY!!!

I will be the ultimate judge on whether or not the said glitter rubs off ... no matter how hard you rub!

I didn't think I needed this die, but I'm quickly changing my mind!
