More Upcycle

Milk Carton and Purse

In my craft-room purging, I came across some large plastic boxes.  They turned out to be the boxes that my JC Penney 2″ blinds came in. It is a textured, translucent, heavy duty plastic and I decided to try my die-cutting skills on some.  So it cut some pieces 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and die cut a mini milk carton and a purse.  Cute!

Here is the milk carton with some leftover Valentine candy in it:

And the purse, next to one made from cardstock:


I chopped up all the boxes and have enough to make about 60 more…. I better get busy!

If you want to make some yourself, here is what you will need:

  • Big Shot die-cutting machine (113439)

You can shop for these supplies and so much more at my Stampin’ Up! store.

    I have some of those plastic boxes I kept when I got new blinds…..from Penney’s. Thanks for the ideas. I have some friends that will love this for their little girls. Cool ideas. And I can do something with the plastic as well!!!
