last weekend, i helped my sister-in-law make Valentine’s Day bags for her class party. she found this super cute idea on Pinterest, and all she needed was a Cricut because hers doesn’t work. (Cricut, if you read this, she could use a new one!)
we did make some changes to the original project to make it easier for kids to do.
what you’ll need:
- brown paper lunch bags
- black scrapbook paper (x2)
- white scrapbook paper (x2)
- hot pink scrapbook paper (x2)
- light pink scrapbook paper (x2)
- red scrapbook paper (x2)
- light pink felt (1.5 yds.)
- glue stick
set your Cricut to cut 1.5″ – 2″ black circles, 1.3″ – 1.5″ white circles, 1.5″ hot pink teardrops and 1.3″ light pink teardrops. (i’m not going to include instructions on how to use a Cricut because i’m not an expert.)
NOTE: we found teardrop clipart online and resized it to make the ears.
cut a medium-sized circle out of the felt for the nose, and draw on nostrils with a Sharpie. cut a large heart out of the red scrapbook paper and attach to the middle of the bag.
even though Valentine’s Day is over, these goodie bags would be perfect for a barnyard-themed kids’ party. or save the idea for next year!
until next time,
