I had to share some of the cute Valentine goodie holders I made this year. I received this swap at leadership in a Big Shot Swap and just loved it! The person that made it used a 'bag-a-lope' for the goodie holder between the outer shapes, but when I made it I used a mini brown lunch bag. Easy peasy! I buy these in bulk at Sam's for a song. If you use the brown bag, just cut the bag at 3 inches from the bottom for it to fit. Stick it all together and then use the medium sized oval punch to punch through all the layers. It works! This is another example of me not having the same exact stamps as the sample so, I improvised! I used the Forever Flowers wheel inked with the vanilla craft pad and embossed with clear for the background. The words are from the set Holidays and Wishes. I used an old heart punch from a past Stampin' Up! catalog for my accent hearts. I just love this little country style heart. The ribbon at the top is the wide pink grosgrain. It is just there for looks. The bag holds quite a bit of chocolates! If you are going to put anything heavy in here, be sure to stick it together with sticky strip.
