MCT February Release Sneak Peeks ~ feelin' lucky!



Well well well, we are at  day 4 of  My Creative Time's February Sneak Peeks!  Do you know what that means?  It means...tomorrow the shopping begins!!!!  Before that begins we have one more day of projects to share with you.  :)

My project today is St. Patrick's Day treat box, made with the new Milk Carton Die.  This die is AMAZING!!!


I used white Papertrey Ink cardstock to die cut the carton.  After I made all the folds and die cut the shamrock, I watercolored the rainbow.  Yep, that's right another watercolor project...lol!


I placed a piece of clear cardstock inside to create a window and to keep the chocolate gold coins in.
