Valentine's Milk Carton

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day!
One of the days that I feel most under pressure!
Even though I am married and have been for over 17 years!

When I was a kid it was fun holiday.
You go to school and every kid in the class room gives you a Valentine.
You get to eat Cupcakes and Chocolate.
Yum my favorite.

Tonight I made two milk carton's out of card stock
and put Hershey Kisses in them for my Daughter's teachers.
I have made these milk cartons several times over the last year and half.
This is the first time I have taken a photo to share.

Here is where I got the directions for the cartons.
Here is the tutorial I found on Cristina's blog Getting Crafty on the flower using the scallop punch. Here is the direct link to her video on

And here is the cartons that I made. Both took me under a hour to make.
The flowers I made yesterday.

The card attached is 2.5 x2.5 and yes that is a quilled heart on the the punched heart.
In the center of the flower is a button that looks like a quilled heart. ;-D

And this is the other one I made.
I took several pictures just could not get the picture to show the details.
It is exactly like the other one.
But the flower and the heart is pink and the quilled heart is in white.
The button in the center of the flower is pink.
