So Lets get started.

1. I First laid out the ribbon over the 4 bags measuring the top and bottoms and cutting the ribbon according to width of bag.

3. Next, I used the Cupid Punch on Black Cardstock to punch out about 12 Cupids, they are so tiny and cute…

4. I then applied the mini cupids to the bags with a glue stick. I laid them on the glue stick then slid them off with my fingers to apply the glue to the underside. Then I sprinkled them all over the bags randomly.

5. I used the Valentines Stamps and stamped them in Black Ink onto the bags.

6. I attached the card with glue stick to the bag directly, wrote my sentiments on the front of the card and inside. I also put a tad of glue on the inside so that the card would stay shut.

7. I then decorated all of the little black cupids wings with Glitter Glue.

I had fun with this and it was under $20 for 4 kids and they’ll appreciate that I took the time out to do it for them. I love my kids sooo much. Here’s what I got my hubby for Valentine’s Day, just gave it to him at lunch.

I gave him XOXOXO post-it notes so that he could write love notes back to me, see ladies a gift that keeps on giving. I reused the bag for the cards for the rest of his candy.

There is a card that I wrote this on the inside:

We’re going out for dinner and a movie this Friday night. We normally don’t go anywhere on Valentine’s Day because I loathe the crowds and waiting in line, so we either go the weekend before or after. Thanks for reading, and Happy Valentine’s Day to you ALL!!!
