How to Make a Mini Milk Carton Cottage with Chic n Scratch, Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Angie Juda. 

My project today is this darling Mini Milk Carton Cottage that I made with the Little Ladybug Host Stamp Set.  If you you don’t have ladybug set, you could use the Bonanza Dies or Wiggly Bugs (or Special Someone).

I used Real Red Cardstock to make the box and Basic Black Cardstock for the roof and it was embossed with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.   I used Basic Black Twine from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack to cover the staples on the roof.  During my live video on Monday it was suggested that I color the staples with our Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker … what a great idea!

The “Hello” greeting is from the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and after I stamped it I fussy cut it with my Paper Snips

I colored the ladybug with our Stampin’ Blends Markers:

I cut the ladybug out with the Ladybugs Dies and added her to a stitched square cut out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.
