Easter Treat Milk Cartons--Cricut design

I know that I have really liked the milk carton candy containers that I have seen for the past year or so but just couldn't justify the cost of the Sizzix die...I wanted to be able to make different sizes.  Here is my project:



These were so simple to make.  I used a free milk carton SVG file which is for the Sure Cuts a Lot software and cut with the Cricut Expression. The green milk carton on the left is the original size of the template and the one on the right is the one I resized to be a better size for me to give to my grandkides as Easter Treat boxes. 
The little birdie on the front of the purple  milk carton is a Quickutz die called, what else bird.  I thought the multi colored rick rack was so cute for this little birdie and it only needed a button and butterfly to be complete.  Don't want to get too fancy, after all they are for kids who will not save them LOL. 
The green larger carton was decorated with a band of Easter dp and a top and bottom band of pink check ribbon.  A sticker saying Happy Easter, given to me by my daugher Michelle several years ago, matched the design elements and was just the right size for the carton.
I hope you liked my little Easter cartons,  I have been enjoying having a little time to play with my cricut this week-end.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
