Valentine’s Gift Bag


Hi Again!!

I’m back with the gift bag I didn’t have photos of yesterday….so sorry about that!! 

This is the gift sack I made for my daughter’s teacher.  As you can see, it’s another super simple project, but I think it turned out really cute!  :-)

Here are shots of a few different angles of the bag. 


Here’s a straight on shot of the bag.  I started with a plain white paper lunch sack and cut about 1/4” off the top to get rid of the jagged edges of the bag.  I punched the top of the bag (while still in the folded position) to get the heart border.  When I did this, I had NO IDEA how it would look on the finished project, but it turned out great!  The punch works perfectly with this bag and makes a cute decorative edge for the bag with very minimal work involved!  ;-)

I used the Doodlecharms Cricut Cartridge to create the hearts.  I cut the black scalloped and white hearts at 1.75” on the border feature.  I used the same Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and inked the edges of the bag and the white hearts.  I stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” using the SSD Label Accents and Black Soot Distress Ink.

Thanks for stopping by!  See ya again soon……
