Goat Milk Carton Box (LMMS Inspiration)

Hello everyone! :o)

My second post today... If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.

It's Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Week and I made this Goat Milk Carton Box. :o)

For my project, I used a super fun LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Old Billy Goat' digital stamp. This image and couple of other images will be released to the LMM's store today. :o)

First I made a milk carton box template from a white cardstock paper (8.5" x 5.75") and assembled the box, leaving only one side on top to open. The box is same size as a Valentine Milk Carton Gift Box I made last month (first milk carton box I made). I'm planning Box Tutorial Series here on my blog in close future, so I didn't prepare step by step instructions for today.

I glued lovely stitched hills die cuts on all sides of the box. I don't have die cutting machine. My dear friend and DT mate Kristina cut and sent them to me. Thank you Kristina!! :o) Stop by Kristina's blog, she makes super cute and fun cards. :o)

Next up was the goat. So fun!!! I printed the image on a watercolor paper and left it dry through the night to prevent ink smearing. Next day, I colored the image in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut it, leaving thin white border around it, added white highlights on the image, glued 2 mm thick foam on the back of it and placed it on the box.

Lastly, I coated a goat's collar with Clear Wink of Stella and embellished the box with enamel dots and arrows.

Box body dimensions: 2" x 2" x 2 1/2"

Box height: 3 7/8"

  1. Super cute. I love the grass base around the carton and the fun dots. What a cool project!

  2. How fun and cute goat on your adorable milk box!! Love the shades of green of the stitched hills, they have a lovely spring feel! The enamel dots and arrows embellishments look great!

  3. Oooh, this is amazing Milka! :D I love this milk box (and I already admire Valentine box) it reminds me of my childhood when we have yogurts and milk box like this. :) And Billy the Goat is super adorable! :) Thanks for the tip to leave printed images overnight to dry.
    P.s: I never noticed that you don't have the cutting machine.. Good to know! :)

    1. o) Thank you Valentina. :o) It also reminds me on childhood. :o) xx

  4. Milka, this Milk Carton looks great and I love this cute goat!

    Greetings from Wiebke (KomMa-designed)

  5. Your milkpack is adorable, so sweet and the goat is lovelu coloured as well, perfect combination, thank you for making this gorgeous creation for LMMS this week, hugs, Marion

  6. This is super cute, Milka. Very original project. I love that fun goat! Your printer can handle watercolor paper with no trouble? Hmmmm. I need to see about getting a new printer! Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers WC Challenge.

    1. :o) Thank you Melissa. Glad you like it. :o)
      About the printer and watercolor paper.... Watercolor paper piece you are printing on shouldn't be to small. Thicker paper, larger piece.
      I cut my thick watercolor paper to 4" x 5 1/4" square and print images on it. Sometimes I print on A4 paper size or 4" x 10 1/2" or 4 1/4" x 11" paper size.
      When I use thin inexpensive watercolor paper, I print images on smaller paper pieces.
      :o) I hope this helped a bit. :o) xx

  7. Gorgeous project Milka! I love the design and the image is super cute.
    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
