A Quick and Easy Valentine

Our Kraft Gift Bags are probably one of the quickest and easiest ways to present a heartfelt Valentine’s Day card. These cute little bags are just the right size for a standard hand-made greeting card, but they’re also a perfect fit for a gift card.

Tips & Tricks

Make it a pouch: To create the front fold, score the bag 5″ from the bottom. Trim the side of the bag from the top down to the score line. Fold the front flap down, and that’s all there is to it!

Holy Glimmer Hearts, Batman! The bottom row of hearts were cut out of the Kraft bag, and a small piece of glimmer paper was attached behind them to show through. Place the rectangular hearts framelit from the Min Treat Bag Framelits face up in the bag, so that the cutting edge is centered at the bottom of the bag. Turn the bag face down to run it through the big shot. After removing the framelit, put a glue dot on the right and left upper corner of a small piece of glimmer paper and slide it into the bag. When it’s in place, pinch the bag together to adhere the glue dots to the front of the bag.

Just a little more shimmer: For just a little added shimmer, use the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush like an Aquapainter. For this project I squeezed the Real Red ink pad to create a pool of ink of on the inside cover of the pad. I dipped the Wink of Stella into the ink and then painted a few random hearts on the background paper. I cleaned the Wink of Stella by brushing it on scratch paper until the red ink was gone. Then I repeated with Pool Party ink. It’s the same effect as water coloring, but with a little extra bling.
