Valentine Arrow Love You Gift Bags

Valentine Arrow 'Love You' Gift Bags

I've seen lots of pretty Valentine arrows this year and, of course, Pinterest is loaded with the cutest arrows you're ever going to see.  SO, I needed to make some arrows myself. I want to make everything. I just like making things.

I brought out my prettiest and pinkest scrapbook paper. I used some pretty straws as the base for the arrows.

About a month ago - right after Christmas - I bought this really cute Washi-like tape at Joann's Fabric Store that says, "Love You". I love it so much. I've made some other things with it also.... coming soon....

The little hot pink handle gift bags I bought at a party store (that place has such FUN stuff) were perfect for what I needed. I noodled around with the scrapbook paper, making hearts and arrows but in the end I really liked the gold arrows the best. Initially I really wanted some Chinese take out containers but when I saw these little bags I knew they were the right thing for this project.

Do you have any scrapbook paper? Make some arrows .. it's great fun. Here are some arrow pictures I took when I was putting the arrows together.

 Valentine's Day is a fun time to make something pink and pretty so go make something! I used to make doily Valentines. Did you make Valentines as a kid?

Hope you are having a great weekend.


 I love finding and sharing fun stuff from all over the net.
