Super tall Milk Carton box!

Hello!  Yaaaaaaay!  Friday!  I have the neatest thing to share with you today!  I made a few of these recently using the milk carton die. You can see that post here.  Then I saw Angels Hawks very, very cool tutorial to stretch those little guys to be 6" tall!!!!   You can find Angel's awesome tutorial here.  I needed a box to hold some chocolate (the world's most wonderful gift!)  for my step-dad.  He is a super wonderful guy and happens to have a birthday coming up!  He really likes Reeces cups and although the small version of this box would have been really good to wrap some up and send them to him... this giant box is even better! :)  See how awesome this box is:

I am really happy with the way it turned out and am feeling pretty confidant that I can stuff it with lots and lots of his favorite candy! 

The top comes together really nicely when gathered up!

Here is the tag with just a hint of Fall!  I added Dazzling Diamonds to the leaves because in my humble glitter loving opinion everything looks better with a touch of sparkle! :)

Close up of those sparkly leaves!

What a lovely gift. I agree that the more chocolate the better and your packaging is truly gorgeous.
