Milk Carton Bride and Groom

I saw this little darling milkcarton on the splitcoast website: and CASE'd it to make these.
The tuxedo is just black cardstock shaped into the milk carton. For the collar, just cut out another black piece to fit over the side, split it down the middle But not all the way and fold over to make the collar and slide a smaller piece of white underneath to mimic the shirt. Add black brads, black 1/4 " grosgrain for the bowtie.

For the bride, I did wheel the Love wheel onto the white CS with versamark and used iridescent ice to emboss it to create a subtle sparkle. I closed it with a library clip and tied the organza ribbon and a string of pearls (I got this at J*anne's in the dollar bin many years ago) and secured it onto the library clip using a gluedot. Any body planning a wedding any time soon? What an adorable way to serve up almonds or other candies or birdseed to sprinkle at the wedding!
