Valentine’s Puzzle in Mini Milk Carton

valentine Milk Carton and puzzle

Today’s project is a sweet little gift to go with the card I made last time. I would add a couple of chocolate hearts as well. The milk carton was cased from Gez Carpenter at Nigezza Creates. https://www.nigezza.co.uk/2020/01/thoughtful-blooms-milk-carton-yankee.html 

Love You to Pieces – Annual Catalogue page 86

valentine puzzle stamped

 

We will start with all our stamping.
For the puzzle stamp the heart sentiment in the centre and then randomly stamp all the little hearts in different colours all over, making sure to stamp some off the edge.

valentine Milk Carton layers

 

For the layers, we want to stamp the sentiment in the centre of one and then the hearts in different colours surrounding it and on the remaining three layers, making sure to stamp off the edge as well.

 

For the milk carton we want to score on the long side at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ and 7″.
Score on the short side at 1 3/4″, 3 3/4″ and 5″.

valentine Milk flat cuts
With the large squares at the bottom, as shown in the picture, cut up to the first score line, notching numbers 1,2 and 4.
Cut off the small rectangle at the bottom and notch both ends of the flap.

Glue the layers to the middle squares, making sure the one with the sentiment goes above the square numbered 3 in our last picture. This will be our front.
Add glue to the narrow flap and fold the milk carton in half and secure.
Fold in the bottom flaps and glue, leaving number 3 until last.

valentine puzzle die

 

Cut out your puzzle using the puzzle die. Put the puzzle in the carton.

Pinch the top of the milk carton closed and secure with a mini binder clip.

Wednesday’s project is going to be a mix-up. A stamp set and dies from the Annual catalogue, paired with some gorgeous Designer Series paper and an embossing folder from the Spring catalogue.

Until next time, happy crafting
