Bridal Shower - Milk Carton

Hi, I wanted to make a special package for a bridal shower gift for a friend, and since I was keen to try using Becky's Milk Carton Tutorial to make a 'half' milk carton tote, I thought this would be the ideal opportunity.  Normally you make 4 milk cartons and there are two sections to sit them in, one at the front and one at the back, but I wanted to see if it would still work with just one section and 2 milk cartons.  I went with a fairly classic 'bridal' style, but I think it worked out pretty well.

Stamps - Both Was Blossoms (retired), Occasional Greetings
Ink - Basic Grey, Versamark
Paper - Very Vanilla, Going Grey, Bella Bleu DSP
Accessories - Basic Grey Taffeta Ribbon, White Embossing Powder, Word Window Punch

Now I just need to find a gift that will fit into the package!!!
