MCT Made In Minutes.....Shamrock Kisses

Good Morning everyone!!!
It is time for another
My Creative Time's~ Made In Minutes!
 The MCT DT will be sharing quick and easy projects using MCT stamps and dies that you can recreate in no time!

For my project today, I wanted to use the AWESOME new Milk Carton Die and make a fun St. Patty's day treat. Hope you like it!
This Milk Carton Die is a MUST have!! I am so super excited Emma has released this and let me tell you it makes putting together treats super easy. I made this Milk Carton in under 15 minutes~from start to finish! So to make it, I used a piece of designer paper from Authentique and die cut the Milk Carton. Then using the Shamrock die from the You're My Pot of Gold set I die cut it into the center of the Milk Carton. Next I  added a piece of acetate to the inside of the milk carton so my "Shamrock Kisses" didnt fall out :)

Once the Milk Carton was all put together, I punched 2 holes in the top to thread my white twine through. For the tag, I used the matching designer paper and die cut the Mini Chalkboard Tag. I stamped my sentiment using the I Believe in Leprechauns set and thought the tag needed something else. I used the special Die of the Month set for those adorable hearts! Die cutting 2 of the Stitched Heart Layering Dies in white cardstock, I went ahead and colored them using my copic markers. For some added sparkle and shine, I then colored over the hearts with my Wink of Stella clear pen. Added the tag to the twine and tied it all in a bow and my project was complete!
