Valentine Quokka Gift Bags

Valentine's Day 2021 is just 2 days away and if you're struggling to find a cute little package to wrap a small gift or some candy in, I've got an idea for you! 
Kat Scrappiness has tons of Valentine's Day inspired products including the brand new 
Valentine Quokka Stamp Set!  I used the Stitched Heart Tag Dies to make these cute little gift bags and I decorated them with those adorable Quokkas!

These cute little bags were super easy to make but I cannot take credit for the original idea.
My fellow Kat Scrappiness teammate Maria made a video a few years back explaining how to put this gift bag together. Here is a link to that video on YouTube in case you'd like to see the process.
Maria makes it super easy to follow the instructions to construct the treat bags.

I created 2 treat bags for today's post using patterned paper from the Heartfelt Wishes Slimline Paper Pad.
This paper pad coordinates with the Valentine Quokka Stamp Set and has the cutest little images of the Quokkas throughout the pad.

I started by cutting out 2 panels from the larger of the 2 dies in the Stitched Heart Tag Dies. You can actually get 2 panels out of one piece of paper from the Heartfelt Wishes Slimline Paper Pad.

The next step was to create the strip of paper that will connect the 2 panels to each other to make the gift bag. The connecting strip measures 2" x 11 7/8" and is scored at several points on the strip.
Score at 4" and 7 7/8" on the 11 7/8" side
Score at 1/4" on the 2" side down both sides
Maria's video shows exactly how to do this and shows the markings on the score board.

The long strip is attached to the 2 heart panels with strong double sided tape.

The long panel lines up perfectly with the heart panel and forms a little box to add your gifts and/or treats to. It's the perfect size for a small gift such as jewelry or a fun mask or some home baked cookies.

I decided to custom wrap some granola bars to add to my bags. I picked out some fun polka dot paper and wrapped the granola bars giving them a fun scalloped edge on each end of the bar.

For the decoration on the front of the wrapped bars, I stamped images from the Valentine Quokka Stamp Set on to a Stitched Scalloped Circle Die and a sentiment from the stamp set on to a Stitched Flag Die.
I decorated the front of the bags the same way.

Don't they look sweet all wrapped up with matching paper and stamps! What a darling little treat bag to give out on Valentine's Day!

Here's another look at them all wrapped up and ready to go with the granola bars inside.

Here's a quick look at all of the products used for this project as well as they are linked throughout the blog post.

I hope you enjoyed my little project today and I hope it gave you some fun ideas for creating fun and unique Valentine's Day packaging!

Have a great day, I already am!
