Abby's Valentines

While once again reading through various blogs, I came across this wonderful idea for a little Valentine gift at Twig and Thistle.. It's an image printed on a paper bag and you can put brownies or other treats in the bags.

I ordered the bags, with the intent of making treats for our friends and neighbors. Then we received a notice from Abby's preschool that said we could bring in 22 Valentines for her classmates. I had already ordered the little bags and sought out to find something a little more juvenile.

A simple document in MS Word was created, with a great font (Catchup) and some clip art. I filled the bags with Annie's Organic Fruit Snacks and tied them with a little ribbon. Once I figured out the best way to feed the bags in the printer, it didn't take long to get everything assembled. I hope Abby and her friends at school love them.

Here's what I came up with...

  1. So cute! I love twig & thistle. We did store bought this year. Boo. And Kaia said she was too old. I did do handmade ones at Chicks in Aprons though today, so I felt satisfied!
