For My Sweetheart

This is something I made last year for my husband.  This gift bag has lots of room to hold goodies for Valentine's Day, Sweetest Day or Just Because.  (I can't show this year's surprise or he will see it.)

 The bag was created from a box that held tea.  I opened up the container to form an instant pattern and traced it onto colored cardstock.  There is a magnet snap under the flap to hold the lid closed.

This sentiment says it all!
I used more masculine colors for the design, but couldn't help adding a few hearts colored with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.
