I did use a retired stamp on these: Chocolate Bunny. I so LOVE that stamp. I really wish Stampin' UP! had kept this one around. GOOD NEWS!!! If you own My Digital Studio, or another program that uses graphics, you can purchase Chocolate Bunny as a digital stamp/image AND, it's only $1.95 :O) Click HERE to order the download.
Here is a view of all four sides of these cute boxes. I used the Wide Oval punch and the Calendar Alphabet & Numbers stamp set to stamp everyone's name on them. For the Easter eggs on the back and front of these boxes, I used the egg stamp from the Easter Blossoms set. In order to hold the boxes closed, I found these cute little plastic clothes pins. They worked perfectly. If I have the Mini Library Clips from Stampin' UP!, I would have used those instead - they are the perfect size for these little boxes.
As a side note: These mini milk cartons are exactly what they are called - mini! They are small, but oh so cute. I filled mine with jelly beans. One medium size bag of the regular sized jelly beans filled all 5 boxes.
