Valentine Treat Bags - 14 Days of Valentines

I am so sorry that this is posting so late.  I've not been moving well (or quickly) today.  Tomorrow's post will be a bit late as well.  Hopefully not this late though.

I have a special Valentines treat bag to share with you today.  I have some special "little people" these were designed to delight.  I used some "leftovers" to create the design on the bags.


I used the paper that was left when all the hearts were cut out for the "10 Ways to Love" post found here .  The heart tags were the centers of the large hearts from the same post.  Isn't this a great way to use up supplies?  3 Girl JAM "cherry lipstick" ribbon makes a beautiful bag closer and holds the tags in place.  I sprayed the bags with Candy Apple Red and Cherub Pink sprays from Tattered Angels.  The tops of the bags were cut with a scalloped border punch by Fiskars.  Now I just need to fill these up with some special treats.


I am going to be linking this up to a few challenges.


Don't forget about my giveaway.  For the rules click here.  Today's "double entry" item is to make a Valentine treat container of some sort.  I don't care what shape or size you make.  Just make it something special for someone you love.

Thanks for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.

I love that you used your leftovers from another project for this! Not only did you recycle your scraps, but you also doubled up on the work you did die-cutting! Such a fun way to decorate these treat bags!
