"Valentine's Day Gift Bag"- BLOG HOP!!

Hello and Happy Saturday!!

Today I'm hopping and pouncing along with some sweet friends from the Pride, "Just a Few Friends"! We are a cool little group of crafters who have joined together in a "pack" to share our creative projects!

So today's theme is to alter a bag for Valentine's Day and to use pinks, brown, blacks and red....not necessarily in that order....and we don't have to use them all....I went super soft with my bag and added a little twist to it!

But first let me share that there is a new cub in our pack....she just joined us a bit ago, her name is Carrie Corbin!! Welcome Ms Carrie!! She is so sweet and super duper ubber talented...I met her on YT and then FB!! So I am happy she is a part of this pride! Please visit her...I'll have her blog link along with my other Pride friends below.....there is typically an order to a hop, so if you didn't start from the top, please do so by visiting Elsa!! Her blog link is at the top of the list, below!
 Oh, we also have our blog "Fan Page" up where you can see pictures and read bio's on each member of the Pride HERE!

So, here is my project! Here's the video intro:) tutorial to follow!


My tutorial on how I made the bag! 



I used some great quality paper bags for my gift bag, 
you can find those HERE.
The Melissa Frances paper and resin heart I had in my stash, but the embellishments I used I got from Discount Paper Crafts except the
beautiful seam binding! 
I got that from my good friend Patsy at "Prairie Bird Boutique" on Etsy! Pretty right? :)

 Hope you like this bag and I hope you're inspired by the little twist I added!
