Valentine Treat Bags

Happy Thursday! Jill Cornell here with you again today to share a fun project in honor of Valentine's Day. I have the world's worst sweet tooth, and I know I would love to receive some sweets this year! A fun way to give something sweet to your sweetheart is by placing the treat in a bag and making a topper for the bag. I used the "With All My Heart" collection on this set of three treat bags.

I used the 6 x 6 paper pad from the collection as well as the die-cut accents with glitter plus a few ribbons, buttons and baker's twine from my stash.

To make the treat bags, follow these simple directions:

1) Measure patterned paper to approximately 4" x 6" and fold it in half. Ink the edges.
2) Sandwich the bag in between the open end and zig zag stitch to close.
3) Punch holes at the top of the bag and thread with ribbon and tie in bow.
4) Decorate with assorted die-cuts, buttons, and twine.

Here are a few close-ups of each bag...

Thanks for looking today! I'll see you tomorrow for my grand finale! :)
