October Blog Hop: Big Shot Projects

Welcome to the second “Inky Divas Blog Hop!” Each month on the second Friday of the month, our team is doing a blog hop with a specific theme. This month, we’ve chosen: Big Shot projects!

For my project, I have chosen to use 2 Bigz L Dies: The Mini Milk Carton (#117310) and the new Peekaboo Frames (#124587) that I used in my post yesterday.  I created a cute little gingerbread house that you could use as an ornament in your Christmas tree.  I remembered when I was in grade 4, we all did a little house with a milk carton (a real one that time!) for Christmas and our teacher made a village with all our little houses under the Christmas tree, in the classroom!  So ever since I saw the Mini Milk Carton Die, I really wanted to create a little house!  I thought that the stamp set Jolly Bingo Bits was the perfect one to create a gingerbread house, with the candy cane, the candy and the gingerbread man! I hope you will like it, I had so much fun making it!!! So here’s my Big Shot project (front and back view):


Stamp set: Jolly Bingo Bits (#120857)

Ink: Real red, Garden Green, Basic Black, Cajun Craze

Paper and Cardstock: Naturals Ivory, Real Red, Whisper White, Early Expresso, Letter to Santa DSP

Tools and Punches: Big Shot,  Mini Milk Carton (#117310) and Peekaboo Frames (#124587), Scallop Trim Border (#118402), 1″ Circle punch (#119868) and 3/4″ Circle punch (#119873), Owl builder punch (#118074) (to cut the candies), 1 in square punch (#124094)

  2. Oh, Julie, I love your gingerbread-milkbox creation!!!! So cute and so easy too. I must give this one a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Probably easier and quicker to make than gingerbread…and everyone can enjoy the treats that can be hidden inside. Great idea, Julie.

  4. This are awesome! I have been looking for an idea to make with some Brownies..I think I just found it!
