Fun in the Sun Milk Carton Gifts by Wendy Sue

Well, hello there Doodlebug friends!  It's been a while since I've been here with you, but I am SO excited to be visiting here today!  I absolutely love (x 100) the new Fun in the Sun collection, so I couldn't wait to create a fun little gift box trio.

To begin, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the milk cartons from white cardstock. I wanted to decorate each box differently, and I love that they are unique, but coordinate!

First, I created the pink flamingo box.  I love the patterned paper with all of the flamingos in a row - and the pink polka dot on the opposite side is pink perfection!

Of course, a pink flamingo doodle-pop must be the center of attention on this card.

 Add a die-cut frame, some sunshine, a sweet sentiment, and my new favorite matte sprinkles (gasp! I love these!), and this little gift box is almost complete!

Next, the palm tree gets to take center stage, the paradise palm, to be exact!

Did you know you can make a sticker banner look like its floating?  Simply rub baby powder on about 3/4 of the sticker back.  Press down the left edge of the banner to stick on the box.  Then just use your fingers to slightly curl the powdered portion.

Finally, the pineapple on top!  I layered several different printed die-cut shapes.

 I used some of the cute little dots from the shaped sprinkles set - isn't it the cutest flower center?!?

After I filled each box with treats (think colorful gumballs, jordan almonds, or candy-coated mints...any colorful treat will do),  I secured each box top with folded doodle tape flags! Then I added a matte sprinkle to the top.

I know summer is winding down, but I'm not ready to let it go just yet.  And with projects like this one, I hope to keep spreading the summer lovin' for at least a few more weeks!
