Craft Project for a Valentine




Something to hold a Valentine gift can be mundane red or pink. A little of that goes far with me.


I really prefer a more natural look and one that is easy to make if I need a lot for club gifts or even for school.
Change the picture for any occasion. The monochrome look seems to be in vogue at present.
To make the gift bag glue on a background text or music page. Mine is French.
Add a word phrase and a picture of vintage cherubs or whatever.
Create a tag with same feel and tie to one handle of the purchased brown paper bag with a scrap of lace.
Tie some ragged gauze to same handle and add a little clear glitter if you like.
Another version has a vintage photo added.
