I heart Valentines with the ScanNCut

I am always looking for fun ways to add a handcrafted touch to my gifting – from class goodies to things for friends. With Valentine’s Day next week I thought it would be fun to get out some bright papers, my ScanNCut, and go to work!

the usual disclaimer that all ideas & opinions I share here are ALWAYS my own and 100% honest. That said, I share with you that I am indeed a paid consultant for Brother. Always upfront around here!

Back to the project – I first got the bags filled and measured approximate sizes so I would know what to cut. Now to show you how I created this I made a YouTube video.

For any occasion or reason from parties to Halloween the steps you’ll want to take are:

  1. Measure out/size up your goodie bag once filled
  2. Using the ScanNCut, cut out a topper and assorted shapes from coordinating papers in sizes 1/2″ – however big you like
  3. Stitch or staple the bag topper onto the bag.
  4. Add shapes, buttons, and other embellishments

I recommend making extra tags, hearts, and flowers – after all you never know when you’ll need just a few for another craft project. I hope you’ve enjoyed this sweet tutorial – I’ve sure had fun making it!
