I know....this is old

I know, Valentines Day was forever ago!! But at the time, I was so tired of making and posting valentine related items that I never did get these posted. But they are so darn cute that I just had to show you!! They were the valentine gifts my son gave his 2 teachers.
I made the milk cartons from the tutorial by Beate on SCS that you can see HERE. I started with white cardstock and stamped the heart randomly all over! I made one pink and one red. Then I made the milk carton and added a pink or red sleeve and tied some great black polka dot ribbon around both (man, I hoard that ribbon -- these teachers should be glad to get it!) LOL. Just a little doodling on the sleeves -- I kept it clean and simple! The cards were made using these cute stickers! I simply added them to a 3x3 white card and used my black marker to draw around the edges. I really like doing this -- seems to finish off the card!
I poured Strawberry Malted Milk balls into each and sealed the cartons. Although I think my sons teachers liked their gifts, I found out after that one is allergic to milk products and couldn't eat the sweet treats!! Drat !! Next time I'll have to be more careful!
Thanks for visiting.

Oh my goodness, Donelda! These are SWEET! I love the stickers, too. Some stickers really don't look too bad. I don't usually use them, but I guess it depends on what they are made of. *shrug* Your milk cartons are too cute as well! TFS
