Heart Shaped Bag

Hope everyone has had a great weekend.  We finally received much needed snow.  But of course, it's melting quickly.  Today's project, I decided not to do a card.  Instead, I made a heart shape bag.  I can't wait to share this with you.  It was very easy to make.

I used a 12" x 12" patterned paper.  On page 117 of my cricut cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes & More, I used "heartbag".  I cut it as large as I could using the blackout feature (6" ?).  Scored and taped where needed.  Then on page 91 of the same cartridge I cut the scallop tag at 2" on blackout in red.   Then again in white at 1 3/4".  I stitched around the white tag with my black zig pen.  Then used "love you and heart" from both Fiskars "Friendship Garden and All Year Greetings" stamps.  Stamped them in red ink.  Used some DMC white floss and threaded it through the red heart button from Hobby Lobby and attached all to the bag.  Then I wanted to attach a red rose to the bag.  So, I used Flower Shoppe Cricut Cartridge.  On page 13, I cut the Scallop1 image at 2 1/2" out of red.  I used my quill tool to wrap the image around to form the rose.  On page 17, I then cut a Sunflower4 image at 1" out of green and attached it to the bottom of the rose.  Using my quill tool I rounded the petals to help form the rose and finalized the rose with Glossy Accents.  After the rose was dry I attached it to the bag in the corner.

Finally, I used red tissue inside bag and filled it with my favorite bite size sweets (i.e. Reese hearts, Hershey hearts, Snicker bite size bars).  Wrapped some 3/8" ribbon "Valentine's Day" from Hobby Lobby around the handles to seal the bag closed.

My daughter will be receiving this on the morning of Valentine's Day!!!
