Valentine's Day is just around the corner.........

For my project this week for The Cutting Cafe, I used the HEART BAG CUTTING FILE/template. Thought it would be perfect for the next holiday quickly approaching.   I also used the ASSORTED BANNER TEMPLATES AND CUTTING FILES.  It comes with 3 different banners to add to your cards or projects. 
I think this bag would be the perfect size for friends, coworkers or your childs Valentine's party at school.  Just enough candy that you wouldn't have to break anyones New Years Resolution.

For this project I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette Cameo. (Did I ever tell you how much I LOOOOVE my Cameo?~ hehe)  I added the scalloped banner around the top of the bag.   I also added twisted rafia for the handles and made a small crochet flower. To give it a finished look I added a small button brad.  Oh, I used a free digital paper I found online.  I can't remember where though.  I have started saving them by the designer so that in the future I will be able to tell you where to get them.
I had an extra heart from this set, so I did something very simple and just added it to a box I found in my craft stash. 
Don't forget to stop by The Cutting Cafe, you won't be disappointed!!!
