When I was in elementary school, I would get to buy milk at lunch everyday. I loved those little milk cartons - perfectly chilled and all frothy from shaking them up! And then there was the satisfaction of opening them to see if I would get one of the ones that popped open perfectly or one that I had to rip open with the force of a thousand school kids! Oh, and don't get me started on being in grade 6 and finally getting to have the job of selling the milk! Ahhh...the memories! So when Doodlebug launched the new School Days collection, I was tickled by the little milk carton icon that appears on some of the papers, on the embellishments and as a stamp! It brought back so many fun memories that I hadn't thought about for years! So I decided to not only use that cute milk carton stamp in my project, but to actually use it as the inspiration for a treat container shape. And while the milk containers of my past were crisp white, I couldn't help but to bring in some bold Doodlebug colour - petite prints to the rescue! Given that I have a few little people in my life currently in school and many teaching colleagues that I like to spoil with treat containers, I couldn't just stop at one! I played with a few of the different stamps in both the School Girl and School Boy Doodle Stamp sets sometimes adding them to the little tag with some foam adhesive for a bit of "pop"...
...and sometimes just layering them on top of each other for a custom stamp of my own!
And to finish them off - some cute shape Sprinkles for a bit of shine and some extra smiles! While these cute containers might not be filled with actual milk, I hope that they will bring some smiles and fond memories to those who will receive them!
Thanks for stopping by!
