DIY Kit Challenge

I went to a get together with some of my CTMH Besties last night. Okay, it was a business meeting but we also had some fun. 
The challenge was to come up with a project and bring it in the form of a kit for each of the other demonstrators.  There were some great ideas! The one I created was a tiny milk carton.
I was happy that everyone liked it.  It was created from the "2-4-6-8" box that's been around for many years.  You will all learn that I am obsessed with boxes.  Following is a diagram of how to make one, sort of, I learned that I need to be more explicit in my instructions.  Since this was a learning experience, then it was a success.
The dark lines are score lines and I noted where they should be cut, and I should have noted that the 'skinny' section on the right end is where you would put the adhesive.  I would recommend the red sticky tape for boxes.
The products I used were from Close to My Heart.  White Daisy cardstock (#1385), stamp set used was My Life, included in the Artbooking Cricut Collection (#Z1906), stamped with Cranberry ink (#Z2116), the flower and hearts were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (#Z1686) from Cranberry cardstock (#1272), and the 'leaves' Topiary cardstock (#X5635).  Also used a binder clip and some bling.

Have a great day, go get creative!
