Valentine's Treat Bags

I'm helping put together Valentine's treat bags for my daughter's class and ran into a snag.  The goodies that were going into the bags for the boys didn't fit.  I needed to come up with another bag for them that was bigger and of course it was late at night and I couldn't run to the store.  What I did have on hand were plenty of brown paper bags.  My husband didn't think they'd be fancy enough. :)  He knows me better than that! Like I would leave them as brown paper bags.  Ha!  I came across a tutorial on printing directly on the paper bags with your printer.  Oh my goodness, the possibilities are endless.  I'm definitely doing this from now on.  To get the paper bag through your printer you just need to tape the bottom flap of the bag down.  The fantastic "I Dig You!" graphic came from One Charming Party. I thought it was perfect! I punched two holes on each side and ran some ribbon through and tied a bow.

  1. This turned out so cute! I have read that you can put bags through the printer but never tried it. I'll have to add it to the list.
