I'm joining the rest of the Sizzix Design Team today, celebrating Eileen Hull and her wonderful dies. I made these little treat bags for my children for Valentine's Day.
The main heart shaped "bag" is made using the Sizzix Scoreboards L Die Bag, Heart die. I used Little Sizzles Mat Board and adhered Kissing Booth Fabric by BasicGrey to it using HeatnBond. I adhered the fabric to my mat board before cutting the bag with my die cutter.
This little bag is for my youngest sweetheart. I wanted to make it as pink and frilly as possible because you are only 3 years old for a brief while. I edged the sides with lace trim as well as the front edge of the bag. The embellishment is made using the 3-D Fringed Flower die and little flowers cut from the Borders and Hydrangeas die. I added tiny pearl beads for the center.
This bag is for my first grade sweetie pie so I knew it had to have a little glitz. The handle is a gold ribbon and the lace I used on the inside front of the bag is a white eyelet with gold bits. The sides of the box are edged in tiny adorable pom pom trim. I again used the 3-D Flower die along with the Flower Layers with Heart Petals die and the Leaves die for the embellishment with a golden cut button from BasicGrey, stitched on with metallic thread.
The bags are small, just big enough for a few Valentine's Day treats. Heart necklace and bracelet sets for my girls...
and Lego minifigures for my son (who caught me making these and insisted that he wanted one). His bag is also made with Kissing Booth fabric. I tried to resist the lace for his but still used it to edge the box. The rick rack is made using the Borders and Hydrangea die and the little heart is the tiniest Scalloped Heart Framelit.
Many of the trims used in this post were courtesy of May Arts. All the felt is courtesy of National Nonwovens.

Happy Valentine's Day to you!
