Homemade Valentine Gift Bags Made From Envelopes

I did a post on "Going Green Packages and Toppers" around Christmas time.  These little bags are inspired by the ones I posted about  from "How About Orange.."  I decided to try them in a Valentines theme, because most Valentine treats are small and would  fit perfectly in these bags.  We always have envelopes laying around, so it is a great way to use them up!

I made this little heart shaped pom-pom by using silver twist ties, inspired by these from Nice Package.

I wanted to get more creative with labels, but I couldn't get my setting right on the printer for envelopes, so I gave up after the heart print.  I was really wishing I was a stamper right about then, I know there are some really great Valentine stamps out there, which would be easy and look great.

Instead, I just kept them minimal.  I plan on filling these with treats and love notes, and sitting them at the breakfast table on Valentines day for my 3 little sweets!
