Altered Milk Container

Had fun today cutting up a 4 pint milk plastic container. I used alcohol inks to colour it. Then I glued some rhinestones and a fabric flower on the front. Then I cut some tags and a butterfly with the cuttlebug. Stamped on the tags and embossed the buterfly. Next I made holes with a punch and threaded ribbon through for the handles. Finally I threaded the tags on some fibre and attached them to my milk carton/handbag.

Fabulous Caz! Why don't we have milk cartons like that in Sweden?
