Valentine Pouches and Bookmarks

P1060849 Hello friends! I have some Valentine fun for you today. These are the pouches I made for my kids' teachers.  I got the cute little bags from Michelle Phillippi.  You can buy them in her shop.  I folded them half way up and then secured them with score tape.  This gives you two pouches.  One from the fold and one in the bag.  I have seen them done where people sew them but I do not enjoy sewing.  The score tape worked great.  Next I added lots of little fun pieces from pink and red cardstock and some patterned paper (Simple Valentine)  In the bag are some giant Ghirardelli bars and some smaller candy and a bookmark.

Here are all three together.  Each one is a little different.  I get bored doing the same old thing.
Next the little bookmarks.  I used the bookmark die, some old ribbon, scrap paper and Simple Valentine and Tiny Treats stamps.
 Last we have the candy bar wrap.  I did this up for my hubby.  Its another giant Ghirardelli Chocolate bar.  I wrapped it in pp and added a stamped embellishment.
That's all I have!  Thanks for stopping in!
