Sneak Peek #4 - Valentine Milk Carton

I had so much fun creating my Easter Milk Carton for the New Product Blog Hop, I wanted to make another one!  If you missed it, you can see it HERE.  The My Creations Milk Carton comes in a package of two so I had another one to play with.  This time I decided to create one for Valentine's Day.  What a cute little gift to give to someone special!

I used the Spray Pen to add a spray mist to my box before I put it together.  I mixed 3 drops of Hollyhock re-inker with water and our Create A Shade Pearl Paint.  By only using 3 drops of Hollyhock, this gave me the lighter color of pink that I was looking for.   I cut out 3 sizes of Hearts <Heart1> with my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to use as mask before I sprayed.   I added removable adhesive to the back of the hearts and placed the hearts randomly on my box.

Before Spraying

Here is the box after I sprayed it with the mist and the hearts removed.  You can see the masking.  Something to note... I placed the box inside a large box to spray.  Otherwise, the mist goes anywhere and everywhere!   But that is what gives it this fun effect!
After spraying.

Before assembling my box I stamped a Heart Dimensional Element with the heart stamp that accompanies the Art Philosophy Cricut Collection. (The collection comes with 3 stamp sets in addition to 3 sets of dimensional elements!)  Next, I added Bitty Sparkles to the heart and adhered it to the carton.  I used the little words that were on the same stamp set to stamp on the other hearts. 

Again, using the Art Philosophy cricut cartridge, I made a tag to tie onto my carton.  I cut the tag at 2 1/2" using the <Heart1> Tag setting. I used one of my hearts I cut out previously for masking to place behind the cut out heart shape on the tag.  Then I added a Sparkle for bling!  I tied the tag on with ribbon from the Tulip Mini Medley Accents Collection.

Now all I need to do is fill it up with Chocolate!
