Valentine's Treat Bags

Today I've made four Valentine's bags (one each for my husband, oldest son & his girlfriend, and my youngest son).  My oldest received a Christmas gift this year in a felt bag with pinked edges and I just loved the look of it.  I've decided to recreate that bag (albeit smaller version), using cardstock.  My plan is to fill each bag with the favorite candy of each person.

Each bag was made from only one piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock.

I have made a tutorial for this Pinked-Edge Bag if you're interested in making one.  Click to take a look.

I made the bags from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and "pinked" the edges with pinking shears.   I used the new stamp set "Eat Chocolate" and the Decorative Label Punch that matches it.  I used Early Espresso to frame the labels and also added some ribbon to decorate.  I added stitching with a white gel pen to the bag on the left ... and the third bag from the left (it might be hard to tell), has Early Espresso sponged on the edges and stitching as well.
