Milk Carton Treat Bags for my daughter's 14th birthday

My oldest daughter is turning 14 this week and we had a great big sleepover for the party.  My husband was smart and took the two youngest to spend the weekend with my brother... and his wife came to help me with the 12 teenagers!  God Bless them both! Anyhow, I wanted to make a special "treat bag" for her guests so I went surfing to see what I could find to inspire me.  I came across a blog that AMAZED me!  This crafter is brilliant! She has a section called "altered stuff" and in it was a free download of an svg file to cut out a milk carton using SCAL. Tooooo cute!!  Here's the link:

So, I used her wonderful file to make my treat bags...... Thanks Kerry!

I used plain white cardstock and then stamped it with pink and black swirly dot stamps. If any of you had seen my previous post about the zebra, you will understand my color choice :)  I used ric-rak around the middle of the carton and then pop-dotted the "got friends" over top the ribbon. The scalloped squares were cut from Storybook. I printed "got friends" using my printer (curlz font) and then used the center point function on my cricut to cut them out. I punched two holes with my crop-a-dile on either side of the top of the carton and ran satin ribbon through and tied them shut.  They were filled with candy, nail polish and a cool pen.
