Easter Treats- Mini Milk Cartons

Hello! About a year ago I downloaded a cut file for these cute mini milk cartons after seeing them on the Cricut message board. I got it  here . (Of note, last time I checked this file was no longer offered for free but can still be purchased.) I did modify the original file though, adding a door on the bottom that can be opened so that the top would not have to be torn.  I am also happy to say that the crate is one that I created using the new Cricut Craft Room. I haven't used the program much, as a matter of fact this is the first and only project I've done in it so far. I am pretty happy with it though.






I think the pink one is my favorite! Most of the images are from the Easter 2010 cartridge. The flower is from Paisley and carrot from Create a Critter. The faces are done with Peachy Keen stamps.  I also dug into my stash of old stickers and used some on the eggs. The tags are clipped on with these tiny clothes pins I found in the craft section at Walmart.


Here are some pics of the bottom, opened and closed.


They are filled with Skittles and Runts and are all packaged up and ready to go. Had fun making these and now that I have the top fold down I'm sure I'll be making more.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Easter!
