Valentine Gift Bags….

8 Feb

One of my friends at work asked me to make three Valentine Gift Bags for her, one each for her daughters and one for her mother…

I went online to see if I could find some templates but unfortunately I can’t follow directions to save my life so I decided to just wing it again and make one out of one of my Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch sets….

I had a piece of scrap Valentine paper from last year and lined the front and back with it after I punched out a panel that measured 5″ x 10.25″ then I scored it to make the fold for the bottom.  It was very simple to make the side panels as well I just cut  and glued them on.

I added some bows and butterflies and made a computer generated sentiment.  I used my cricut to make the rolled flowers and added some liquid pearls as a finishing touch.

Not too bad, it only took me a couple of hours to make these up and I think they turned out pretty well!

Have a great night!

Lisa 🙂

    I love the bags!!! I need to make something for my niece and nephews. Maybe I’ll make them a bag full of goodies. Of course I’d have to change them up a little for my nephews. They would need something more ‘manly’-they’re age 7 and 5!!! LOL!!
