What's Moo?

Happy Thursday! So What's Moo with you? Today I have a Milk Carton Box I made using the newly-released Artful Inkables Set, Down on the Farm. Now, if you follow my blog at all you probably know that I am "box" challenged. I rarely use my Scor-Pal for anything besides scoring card bases- BUT the cow from this set just MADE me have to make a Milk Carton Box! I won't lie, it took me several (or more) attempts and I wasted quite a few pieces of card stock that will now be in my scrap pile, but I think in the end it is worth it. I created something out of my comfort zone AND it's just too cute!

I colored Bessie (that's what I am calling her) with Prismacolor Pencils and then cut her out with my Nestabilities.
I also stamped the sentiment "What's Moo?" on the sides of the box and attached a border and ribbon.
I think it turned out pretty cute and I will have to try more boxes in the future. (after I replenish my card stock....lol) But this box would be perfect to fill with Milk Duds or some other treat and give to a friend.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a great day and that I see you tomorrow for some Friday fun!
