Cupcake Craft Challenge "Folds"

Well here it is, my first DT submission for the Cupcake Craft Challenge - woohoo I'm so excited!!. The challenge was 'folds' which had to be anything except a card, with 3 or more folds. Now regular visitors to my blog will know that I'm mostly a card person so this was definitely a challenge for me (I said to Lauren that I expected a challenge but maybe not on the very first one lol!!). I had wanted to make one of these 'milk' cartons for sometime so this was the ideal time to have a go. I used a cadbury carton (that my kids had filled with chocolate at Christmas) and pulled it apart and used that as a template. I used plain cs from the papermill shop as the basis for the carton and the gorgeous image is from elzybells. I coloured the image with my trusty pro-markers and punched it out with my woodware scalloped square paper punch. The dp is doodlebug and the stamped sentiment is by PB. The flowers, brad, ribbon and lace are all from my stash. Now I know it's not 100% perfect but it was my first go and I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. I would love to know what you think (good or bad haha). Don't forget to check out the challenge on CCC and I look forward to seeing your creations. Thanks for stopping by.
