xoxo dyi valentine goodie bags

Remember in elementary school when you spent hours making your paper bag look super cute in anticipation of catching all of those lovely Valentines? Just like birthday cards, something unexpected inside at the end of the day was the exactly what you were secretly hoping for. Mine was the red suckers with the white writing. I don't know why - I just really liked the suckers! I wanted to make Aubrey's Valentine's Day special this year and since she is a little craftista herself, I wanted to channel that creativity into her Valentine's Day cards. I love the way they turned out and they are super easy to make!

You will need:
- bags of Hersey Kisses (I bought one too many, on purpose :) )
- clear archival sleeves (found at Michaels)
- cardstock
- ribbon
- scissors
- hole punch

Step 1: We used 5 kisses per bag, using the smalles archival sleeves.

Step 2: Then we made a leaning tower of ribbon (optional) :)

Step 3: Create/Print off your bag header design. We used hearts from Three Paper Peonies and font via Kevin and Amanda.

Step 4: Punch a two holes, thread the ribbon, and tie in a bow!

Step 5: Drink wine + eat the rest of the kisses!

XOXO, Brooke
