BURLAP VALENTINE’S BAGS
By Erin Reed
I love to give out little treats and gifts for Valentine’s Day. Everyone needs a little something to let them know how much you love having them in your lift, and these little bags filled with goodies are just for that!!
I created many different types of flower bow for the fronts of these bags all from the amazing Canvas Corp burlap, canvas, and ticking flowers in reds, whites, ivory, and natural colors. You can make these with any colors of flowers and ropes you want, the possibles are endless!! To see what Erin used and for a video stop by Erin’s Blog Scraps of Reflections.
VINTAGE DIY VALENTINE BAGS
by Lisa Kettell
Lisa put all these vintage bits and pieces together to make these adorable goodie bags that are read to be filled with love notes, candy, gift cards or other special little treats. Canvas Corp Papers are great for making little bags. The cardstock weight makes them sturdy and ready to hold little goodies. If you have a die cut machine you can die cut pre-made bags.
A little baker’s twine criss crossed not the bag makes for the perfect place to clip a little “love token” note. Layers of accordion papers, doilies and hearts add just the right touch. The gold doily is absolutely perfect with the misted Black & Ivory Damask paper background.
7gypsies Gypsy Moments cards are the perfect little vintage cards to add to your valentine bags blank and let the receiver write their special notes or jot down a special memory, little note or a love poem.
