I'm stuck on candy hearts this year. I don't know what it is, I bought a bag of those tiny candies with the silly love messages and couldn't help but doodle a few. As I was drawing I found I kept eating the candies… banana is NOT my favorite and for some reason I couldn't remember to keep the yellow candies away from my taste buds. Needless to say, I ate more than I meant, so good thing these printable are not edible!

How to make a mini Valentine Gift Bag
each printable might be slightly different, but the process is the same. Some printables have 1 bottom flap while others have up to 4. Just remember to start with the same process for each. Some bag designs, you can cut off pieces of the printable that you don't need.
- Cut out the bag printable.
- Fold along all printed lines.
- Start at the bottom, glue/tape small side flaps to inside of bag. Glue sides from front to back.
- Cut out the long strips of paper and use as handle, gluing on the sides of the bag.
Use the gift bag printable to make a tiny package too. Just cut off all the bag flaps and fold the paper into a small pouch.
Different gift bags all made from the same printable. Use decorative scissors to make that fancy bag top you see below. Cut and fold and add circles with a hole punch. Play with different looks to make all the different bags and packages.

How to make a Valentine Banner
(the same idea applies no matter what size banner you are making)
- Cut out the individual candy heart letters.
- Cut a long piece of string or twine.
- Tape string to the back of each letter.
- Hang however you'd like.
For larger banners (not doll sized), you can punch holes in the letter pieces and thread the string through the holes.
Another option: glue the string on the back of each letter and cover with a separate piece of paper or decorative heart so the back of each letter looks nice too. This is useful if you are decorating bannisters or hanging your banner somewhere that people can see both the front and back of the banner.
