I'm in a 'Valentine' mood! I have been starting my bags and tags for my close friends and family and I have to say I LOVE it :) I started with Velum envelopes. I made them into treat bags to hold goodies. If you're interested in learning how to do it with any envelope - I have a tutorial here. It's old but it works. The Maybe I'll do another soon. I used this AWESOME 6x6 Lovely paper crafting kit by Authentique! It's chock full of die cuts, stickers and beautiful 6x6 papers. You gotta have this! I made two bags and a card. Here is the card I created:
This has to be my favorite sheet - I used is twice, lol! The card flips up for writing. I used a bit of lace, popped up one of the sentiments from the collection, added a pearl swirl and a silk flower. Easy peasy! Here is the first bag, using that same paper - because it's so cute!
and the back..
I used two layers on both sides. Popped up another sentiment from the collection and added flowers and more pearls. I also added lace at the top of the bag. For the back, I added one of the circle die cuts to a bottle cap. It fit perfectly! I created a tag form the collection and added some jute to create a pull. Love the tiny tag at is attached to it.
Here is bag two:
This bag has a more masculine feel. That's the added benefit of this collection pack. It is versatile. I cut/punched out a lot of the die cuts and added them to the velum bag. I popped up more sentiments (because there are a lot) and arranged them on there as well. I found these acrylic hearts from the Dollar Tree and added a red one to the center. Some just finishes it up. Here is a look at the back:
I created a tag on the back to add a special message. Some red eyelet lace, completes the top. To pop up my sentiments I used these foam dots. They go a long way - very useful to have in your stash arsenal.
