Our Experience Making A Valentines Day Bag
My little ones needed a Valentines day bag for school. They were having a Valentines day party at school and I remember using paper bags and tissue paper when I was in school for a super basic one, but I wanted them to have an extra special Valentines day bag. Plus, a handle is always nice to help them carry their Valentine goodie bags as they can get quite full.
And while we could have bought a Valentines bag, they have a number of handmade pieces online, there is something so special about making your own Valentines bags.
