Valentine Gift Bag

Hi, Lisa here today sharing a
Valentine Gift Bag idea
using the Mini Bag Die
I made my little Valentine bag from Designer paper
I attached my sentiment panel, also from Designer paper
with a mini clothes pin.  I heat embossed "I melt for you" using Frosty Stamp and Die Collection, cut a strip and popped it up with dimensional tape.
Here is a little tip I found makes the bag look more finished
After I cut out my bag using the Mini Bag Die and trimmed off the little tabs using scissors,
I used a 1/4" corner rounder punch and rounded all the corners before putting it together.
I used the heart die from the Frosty Stamp and Die Collection to cut the center from the yellow
heart on the Designer Paper
Then I used a strong double sided tape on the tabs as shown
First, fold over the bag flap onto the side flap so the side flap is on the inside of the bag
Then fold up the bottom flap on the back of the bag.

There you go. Have fun making bags for your Valentine needs.
I also love making little bags from copy paper and vellum.
