Valentine Treat Bags

I thought it would be fun to make some little Valentine Treats to share with my Bible Study class tomorrow.  I like to use my scrappy supplies to make cards and gifts to encourage others.  Inside these treat bags are glassine bags filled with chewy cinnamon hearts.
I LOVE all kinds of paper crafts!  Card making, scrapbooking, altered projects!  Sadly, I'm really not a very creative person.  I have to get ideas and inspiration from other crafters to help me get started on everything I make.  Otherwise, I just sit and stare at a piece of paper and have no idea where to begin!  I am simply in awe of talented women like Melissa Phillips.  In fact, Melissa is my absolute favorite blogger in the paper crafting world.  My little treat "bags" were inspired by Melissa's Valentine Treat Envelopes.  If you haven't seen her work, you MUST visit her blog!
These bags are just folded pieces of paper.  I used a Martha Stewart heart border punch at the top of each bag.  The papers include Basic Grey Kissing Booth and Bittersweet, Crate Paper Paper Heart Collection, Echo Park Yours Truly, and Little Yellow Bicycle Love Letters.  Embellishments include    K & Company, Making Memories, and The Paper Studio.  I punched holes at the top of each bag and used sheer ribbon to make "handles" for my bags.  
  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!  Have a wonderful weekend!
