Cute, easy Valentine gift bags

Yes, I realize that Valentine's Day is only about 24 hours away, but if you are pressed for time, or are the Queen (princess/duchess/handmaiden) of Procrastination like I am, these quick, easy-peasy, cute (I think, anyway!) gift bags might do the trick. I whipped these up for friends/co-workers in about an hour tonight--

I used little gift bags I got from Walmart, then filled each with an assortment of Valentine candy. I printed out (ATC-sized it) this lovely freebie image I got from the Art-Zine website:

--which you can find here--
I cut the image to fit just inside the bag, and touched up the tinted roses with a bit of pink, green and yellow glitter glue. Then I made tags from this pretty little bird image from The Graphics Fairy:

I photo-shopped it a bit to change the "Birthday Greetings" to read "Happy Valentine's Day" instead. I then tied the tag onto the ribbon closure from the bag and voila!--a sweet gift idea. Reaction from said friends/co-workers has been great (they're my best critics, lol).
Here's the link for The Graphics Fairy blog--lots of freebies, inpiration and ideas here:
I used newsprint wings that I got from this really cool digital scrapbook kit at
Thanks again for stopping by, and have a wonderful Valentine's Day. =)
