Valentine's Day Heart Bag

 
Created this cute little heart treat bag for Valentine's Day. 
  Instead of folding over the top of the bag, 
 I made a little brown band with lace on the bottom
that slips on the top of the bag to close it.
  Would be fun to fill with Hershey's kisses
or cookies for a special treat.
 
Supply list:

Designer Paper from Ginny Nilson
Brown cardstock, lace, ribbon
1/8" X-Press It Double Sided High Tack Tape
Circle Punches: 3/4", 1"
Thin piece of acrylic plastic for insert to cover heart opening
Cut a band with brown cardstock 1" X 7 1/2"
Fold band around top and crease edges
  Open band and place 1/8" tape along top middle edge
   Assemble per picture
