Valentine's Day Teacher Treats

Happy Friday everyone. The weekend is almost here. Today the JustRite Design team has been challenged to pull out their font sets and be creative. I love to use the Font Ensembles because I can personalize anything that I want to and I am not limited to specific sentiments.

For todays project, I made this cute little "milk carton" container for my daughter Emily's teacher for Valentine's Day. I found the instructions for the milk carton here on Splitcoast. The instructions were very easy to follow. For the holder, I just "winged" it with a lot of measuring.

I knew that I wanted to personalize it for Miss Thurston so all I needed to do was take the 15 point font set(JustRite) and load it onto the outer rim of my 2" wood stamper making sure to center the sentiment. For the inside sentiment I chose the "Teacher Treats" center from the What's Cookin' Borders & Centers set.

After I made the milk cartons, I needed to decide how I was going to embellish them. Around the top of the milk cartons and the box, I used the Martha Stewart Lace Heart border punch. On the milk cartons I also added polka dot ribbon.

I just happened to have a box of conversation hearts candy sitting on my table and that's when the lightbulb came on!!! I was going to use my Curlz Font Ensemble to create my own conversation hearts on each side of the milk cartons.

Now how cute are these!!!! I am sure that Miss Thurston is going to love these. I love personalizing gifts.
Now be sure to stop over at the JustRite blog and see what other creative ideas you can find.
Check out these cute font projects:
And also, don't forget to check out the JustRite blog on Monday where the design team will be having a "Botantical Blog Hop" featuring all of the new sets that were previewed this past week. I am sure that we will all be "wowed" with their creations.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. Have a wonderful weekend!!
