I have seen this little birdhouse everywhere in the "blogosphere" (to the point I can't pin down the original designer to credit). It shows the versatility of this cute mini milk carton. The assembled carton is approximately 1 5/8" wide x 1 5/8" deep x 3 1/4" high. I have approximately 10 Hershey's Kisses tucked inside.
The "roof" can go either direction, depending on how you fold the top. The border stamp from Eggcoutrements and my Scallop Edge Punch constructed delightful "shingles."
The milk carton struts its stuff with this standard version, highlighted by images from the Stampin' Up! Eggcoutrements stamp set (Occasions Mini). I paper snipped the pink basket on the tag for a little color pizzazz.
A quick, coordinated card wraps up this trio. I thought the bunny made a whimsical flower center. Faux stitching was added using a Paper-Piercing Tool and White Signo Gel Pen.
