Teddy Bo Milk Cartons

Teddy Bo & Bea Cartons

Kraft card
Newsprint by Kaisercraft
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
Teddybobea_Tabs_002 digi aka "Three Little Piggies"
Prismacolor pencils

I had been wanting to have a go at making these adorable little milk cartons for a while now, and receiving my Teddy Bo digi was the push I needed to get me started.  The digi comes with three panels, which are perfect for the side of the cartons.

I've coloured the little bears with Prismacolors, I am finding them harder and harder to put down.  They seem much more forgiving than the Copics, although my thumb was complaining quite a lot after colouring these three.

Teddy Bea Carton

The cartons themselves are made from Kraft card, I used a template I found online as a guide and adjusted the measurements to suit myself.  Each panel of the carton is 2 3/4 inches wide by 4 1/2 inches high.

The background paper is by Kaisercraft.  It is the reverse side of a paper called Newsprint, and it has cute dictionary sayings.  Everything has been inked with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

I originally planned to give these as Valentine's Day gifts, but I might end up filling them with Easter eggs instead.  These were so quick and fun to do!
