Cute Little Valentine Gift Bags

Just one more project to share with you for a quick to put together gift bag for giving your littles a sweet surprise. I got a box from Scrapbook Trends a few days ago with my project from the Quick and Easy special issue, and in it was the adorable "Love Me Do" line from My Mind's Eye. I didn't want the holiday to come and go without using this fab product so I found some little gift bags and got to work.

These really cute little gift bags are from Target, but I am sure that there are lots of places that you could find something similar to them.

Trim top of gift bag off to get a clean edge and to make the bags more to scale for the project. This little bag ended up 5" tall by 3" wide.

Cut 1/2" strips of paper from 12" x 12" piece of paper and then cut them into 6" pieces. Place some double sided tape adhesive on the ends on the top of the strip.

After getting adhesive onto the strips of paper, adhere to the inside of the bag for little handles, so cute!!

Cut a cute piece of background paper and adhere it to the bag.

Punch a heart out of the red paper and distress lightly around the edges to give it a little frame to make it really pop of the background paper.

Use a 3-D foam square to adhere the heart to the front of the bag.

All the little gift bags ready to get some goodies put into them for the cute little primary kids I teach tomorrow. They are my little sweeties, and I can't wait to see the look of surprise on their darling faces when I give them these tomorrow after church is over. I made some for my kids too, even though they are older they still enjoy feeling the love from us!

I hope everyone has a very love filled day tomorrow!
