Valentine Treat Bags

Hey all!!!
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. 
That's all I have for today. I hope you guys liked my projects and please visit Srapyland for these products and more! If you wish you can follow my blog, facebook or youtube for more of my crazy craftiness :)
