Auto-adjust text box/shape size.... but with a twist?

Hey everybody,

I'm using an expression that auto resizes rectangles behind text based on the length of text, but my CD wants something a little different. I need to keep this as easy as possible to use/change/adjust because I may be passing this off to the the Premier video editors to create other versions in the future.

The CD would like these text boxes to scale on with these crosshairs/plus signs (and a little bounce) and I can't figure out how to make this with an expression (only thing I can think of is using nulls to move the plus signs, but the video editors would like this to be as plug-and-play as possible).

Any ideas? If someone can figure this out, you get the a place in the golden frame of mograph helping heroes on my desk. Who's gonna take out Dave LaRonde?


*** Here's an example of what I need it to look like ***
