Valentine's Day Treat Bags

Being on the road in my old job meant I did not get to see my colleagues very often, now I work in an office it is nice to spend time with the same people on a daily basis. For Valentine's Day I thought it would be fun to create some treat bags for my co-workers.

These were so easy to make when you have a little 'production line' going.  I laid out the glassine sacks and sprayed them with pink misting spray and a touch of glitter varnish spray, whilst they were drying I die cut and stamped the button cards in stages, once they were all prepared it was an quick task to assemble them with some paper doilies, thread and some washi tape. I managed to make 14 of these little beauties in a couple of hours (I am a notoriously slow crafter though!)
I used Papertrey Ink Button Boutique for the main image on the card, the scalloped heart is an old Pink Paislee Stamp, I finished it off with PTI's Heart 2 Heart 11 for the small hearts and the love word. I used the accompanying die to die cut the hearts which I attached with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, I also coloured the staples with a promarker to make it look prettier. I finished it off with some love heart washi and a pretty pink gem.
I didn't have enough of the same coloured twine so I used a variety of different pink threads that I had in my sewing box. I filled these with chocolate hearts and coins, lovehearts sweets, lollipops and, the best part, a mini Malteaser bunny, those little things are seriously addictive, nom, nom, nom!

I hope that you have a Happy Valentine's Day!
