Mary's Corner - Valentine Bags

Share/Bookmark

I got the cutest Valentine paper by K&Company that's zoo-themed this month at Michael's and had to see how our Betty's Bags and Boxes would look done up for V-Day.  It was fun!  I think I will actually make some bracelets for some girlfriends out of rose quartz beads to put in these.

Dimensions

Here are the exact shapes, sizes and colors I used. Use the Keep Proportions option to keep the shape’s proportions while sizing it to the width shown below.

Design Tips

  • I embossed the teapot and the pointy bag flap with my dotted Cuttlebug embossing folder, which added a nice touch.
  • I topped the teapot lid with a sparkly heart-shaped gemstone and put a 3D pop dot (or Zot) behind the mug to add some dimension.
  • The ribbons I used are both from spools from Michaels.

Paper Suggestions

  • The patterned paper is all from the new Ka-Zoo 12×12 pad by K&Company.  (SKU: 30-387973)
  • For the solid colored cardstock, I used AC Cardstock. This is my fave solid color cardstock because of its texture, its solid-color core (not white-core) and because of how clean it always cuts for me.

    Oh my goodness, are these adorable or what?!?! I’m too late for this year’s Valentine’s Day, but I won’t forget these are in my files. Thanks for the lovely gift.
