Craft the perfect Valentines Day gift with this easy DIY bag tutorial! This fun and customisable craft project is a great way to show your loved ones how much you care. Get creative with colours and designs, and spread the love this Valentines Day.
Valentines is in the air at the moment! Pink and red heart shaped goodies are all over the shops and it seems people are thinking about those little ways we can show how much the one we love means to us.
We don't go all out for Valentines Day, but a little handmade gift is lovely. Last week I shared a tutorial on how to make a personalised photo card for Valentines Day and today I'm sharing this really easy gift bag tutorial.
We buy a bunch of paper gift bags and decorate them for each occasion as they are needed. The receiver of the gift really appreciates the personal and handmade touch and it also means that we don't have to spend lots of money or time buying different gift bags.
These valentine's day gift bags are a fun idea and a really easy craft for adults and kids of all ages. It's a fun way to incorporate craft into your life, especially if you have school age or older kids who try to shy away from crafting.

Simply cut your decorative paper to size so it fits nicely on the front of your gift bag. Glue it into place.
You can decorate these bags for any occasion, not just for valentine's day gifts. They could become...
- Halloween treat bags for sweet treats
- Favour bags for class parties
- Hen party favour bags
- Baby shower favour bags
- Birthday present gift bags
- Christmas gift bags
Why not try these other ideas to mix up your paper bag crafts...
You can try using printable templates to stick on the front of the gift bags - i.e. images of the recipients favourite cartoon or flowers, or even a picture of a place. The possibilities are endless.
Instead of using a coloured paper bag, try using a brown paper bag or even sturdy brown paper lunch bags (they might need a little extra cardboard at the bottom of the bag to re-enforce, depending upon what you are putting in there).
Decorate the front of your gift bag with shapes you have cut out from coloured construction paper. A brown lunch bag is usually recyclable so this makes a great eco-friendly option.
I think it looks pretty and really effective, perfect to hold a little valentine treat for a loved one - and it was easy to do and so much fun! I did make a little YouTube video if it helps to watch it.
If you enjoyed this valentine's day craft, share it with your friends and Pin it for later...
