Valentine Goodie Bags with Apryl

With Christmas and New Year's come and gone, what's the next holiday that's fun to do some crafting for?  Valentine's Day!  It's one of my favorites, and the kids love it also!  Apryl with SVG Attic Guest Design Team here today to share a couple of cute goodie bags using SVG Attic's Basic Gift Bag CollectionJGW Tropical Haven Collection and an assortment of Bella Blvd.  and Heidi Swapp papers.

I like using bright colors and fun patterns together and that is why I chose the flip flop and pineapple to adorn the valentine goodie bags.  The bags I made here are the short and tall handled gift bags.  

The flip flop is from the flip flop standing album file.  I used the flip flop that goes to the front of the album.  This is a two piece flip flop:  the base and the top with slits in it.  For it to fit the gift bag, I resized the flip flip to 5.8" tall and 3.4" wide.  Layered the top shape with the slits in it and sized it so it fits just inside the base.  I also had to resize the other pieces proportionately.  This is easy to do once you have the flip flop resized.  

The pineapple on the short gift bag is from the Pineapple Sweet Card DS file.  I also resized the pineapple to fit the bag.  The base is 5.4" tall by 3.5" wide and I adjusted the layers proportionately.  I added the glasses from the Tropical cool box file.  I hand cut the hearts out of patterned paper and fit them behind the glasses.  I thought the pineapple came out really cute!  He could definitely be my valentine!  

Hope you enjoyed this fun little project and it inspires you to create your own.

Have a fabulous day,

Apryl Holland
