I made these cute little Valentine gift bags/boxes.  Here are a few pictures:

I made these bags/boxes using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge from Close to My Heart.  The image can be found on page 24, A4, Shift, Font Layer, < Dragnfly > cut at 5 1/2".  I used a plain piece of White cardstock.

I then used some Hollyhock ink to random stamp the heart shapes.  The heart shapes and the cute little owl come from the exclusive stamp set that comes in our Whoo's Your Valentine Kit available only through the end of this month while supplies last.  I then cut a scalloped circle from some Black cardstock at 3/4".  It can be found on page 31, B1, < Circle2 >.

 I made 20 of these little treat bags.  You can fit 3 Hershey's Nuggets into each one.  I was thinking of giving these to my students for Valentine's Day.  I may even buy some of those cute conversation hearts to put inside.
