Valentine's Day Goodie Bags featuring Mama Elephant

Hi crafty friends! Today I have some cute last-minute Valentine's Day goodie bags I made for my boyfriend's coworkers. He came home Wednesday night and asked me if I could make some treats for his coworkers. I must admit, I got a little nervous since we've both been so busy and we're going out of town this weekend. But I was relieved when he told me I'd only have to make 4 goodie bags. He didn't want anything too cutesy or girly, so I decided to use non-traditional Valentine's Day colors and I thought the panda from the "Pandamonium" set from Mama Elephant would be perfect.

Valentine's Day Goodie Bags by Handmade by Yuki | "Pandamonium" by Mama Elephant and "Goodie Bag" die by Lawn Fawn

I started off by stamping and die cutting the panda and envelope. I used my R39 Copic Marker to color the little hearts on the envelopes. I then white heat embossed the small heart outline from the "Pandamonium" set and the "Day" sentiment from the "Happy Everything" set onto 4 small banner strips. I die cut the "Happy Script" die 4 times from white cardstock and then adhered the banners strips onto the Y's of each "Happy." I then layered the white sentiments slightly off-set onto 3 layers of grey cardstock I had also die cut using the "Happy Script" die. I used a stitched hillside border die to create a small hill for the panda. I then die cut the goodie bag die using SSS "Surf Blue" cardstock. I used the SSS "Tiny Spaced Hearts" stencil to add some hearts to the front of the goodie bag using SSS "Surf Blue" dye ink. To finish the goodie bags, I stuffed them with some tasty chocolate treats and closed them up with some matching grey twine.

I really love how they turned out and more importantly, my boyfriend does too! I hope his coworkers enjoy these little goodie bags as much as we do. Do you have any fun plans for this Valentine's Day/ President's Day weekend? We planned a weekend getaway to Portland, OR and we're flying out tonight :). I wish everyone a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend and thanks again for stopping by! ♥
