Mambo Orange Butterflies!

Ready for a little Spring?? I had my club group yesterday at Mary's after being delayed last week because of weather. Decent day yesterday and a great time! Mary's daughter is getting married next year and is using Melon Mambo & Only Orange for her wedding colors. When Mary asked me what I thought, my first thought was "bright". But, then I was intrigued and had to play with them together. So, "Colors by Sarah"!

I hadn't played yet with the Mini Milk Carton die from the Occasions Mini so I decided to give it a whirl after finding a great little holder online last week. Here is the original post with the pattern for the holder, by LeeAnn Greff. The holder is very quick and easy to put together. Here is what I came up with:

And here are just the milk cartons by themselves. The clips hold the cartons shut so that they can be opened without ripping.

The holder was done with Only Orange cardstock per LeeAnn's pattern. Quick and easy to score, cut & put together! I ran a strip of Melon Mambo ribbon around the bottom and attached with Mini Glue Dots before adding Butterfly accents cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. I cut one of Only Orange, and one of Melon Mambo and mixed up the butterflies between the holder and 2 cartons.

The Mini Milk cartons were cut from Melon Mambo paper. We stamped the small flourish from Priceless on each side with Melon Mambo ink, and the small flower around it for accent. The carton is held together with Sticky Strip on the bottom, side tab and back top flap.

Hopefully these brighten your day!! Think of all the fun uses for these cute little cartons and all the different ways you can decorate them! Contact me today to order your die and get to creating!!!
