Mini Milk Carton Bird Houses with Christmas Owls

Hello there, 
Hubby went on his work Christmas do today and he wanted a little something for the girls he works with so this is what I spent a whole day last weekend making ;-)
I started with the Mini Milk Carton Die, some Crumb Cake card {the Crease Pad makes this job a lot easier as the score lines are a lot less likely to cut right through ;-)} and of course the Big Shot!
Once cut I folded the score lines and then before assembling I stamped with the Woodgrain Background stamp.
Top Tip: This die cut carton is too big to stamp all in one go, I simply folded it in half and stamped twice, this also gives the added bonus of the woodgrain was going vertically as it would naturally :-)
 To make the roof I punched strips of Early Espresso card with the Scallop Edge Punch, then stamped the strips using White Craft ink and the (retired) Serene Snowflakes stamp set. A current set that would work could be Festive Flurry. Then I inked each edge, again with white craft ink, before glueing them first together and then to the milk carton sides. 
A torn white card strip makes the snow cap and when removed allows access to the goodies inside :-)
 Then I added a Punched Owl accented with Red Glimmer Paper to the front,
and sat him on a Gumball green branch made with the Bird Punch
 and Santa Owl was topped with a cute hat :-) 
 OK, I will share the finished bagged and tagged houses with you tomorrow but that's all from me for tonight.
I hope you liked today's treat holders and thanks as always for looking.
Stampin' Hugs,
