Not New but Oh So Cute!!!

I am so excited about the Mini Milk Carton Die Cut..... There are so many things you can create out of it other than milk cartons. I love birdhouses and there are a lot of other birdhouses shown in other blogs; but I haven't seen one with "EGGS" yet :) I'm actually waiting for the Easter season to get the little jelly bird eggs , but in the meantime I had some Malted Milk eggs I put in my house. I also have some nesting stuff, but it seems to have migrated to the bottom because you won't see any; there's lots in there, but the weight of the Malted Milk balls are holding them down.
Since the top has a roof on it, I made a place on the bottom of the milk carton to open to get the candy out. I used the Word Window Punch and the Horizontal Slot punch to make this happen. I did have to cut a little more than half of one of the bottom tabs to make this work.
My birdhouse is made with Barely Banana cardstock and I also used the Close to Cocoa cardstock for the roof after running it through the Big Shot using one of the texture plates. I punched a hole in the front of the birdhouse with the 1" circle punch and attached a piece of window sheet so I could fill it with candy.
I sponged some of the Soft Suede ink on the edges of the Barely Banana cardstock to give it some dimension and age and I also sponged chocolate chip ink on the Close to Cocoa roof for some highlighting. the bird and branch were cut from the NEW Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch (117191). The punch is soooo fun and versatile. I tried sponging some Pumpkin Pie ink on his belly so he would sort of look like a robin; not sure I accomplished that; anyway I don't think robins nest in birdhouses :)
I hope you all have an extraordinary Monday!!!
