Sweet Valentine Double Pocket Bag


Right before we moved from San Antonio a bunch of my friends and I met up for one last dinner at The Cheesecake Factory at the mall in San Antonio. Jeneane my upline brought me a adorable double pocket bag filled with some stamp goodies as my going away present. I was in love with the bag and asked her to give me directions. She sent me a 12X12 piece of paper with the dimensions on the back. I'm not sure who originally came up with it but quite a while after she gave it to me they posted a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for this Double Pocket Bag. It may look a little intimidating but if you give it a try it is really super simple. So tonight as I sit here in peace and quiet after putting the boys to bed I thought I'd rather not do a card. I feel so guilty ALWAYS doing challenges. I feel like all my personal creativity has gone away like I can't survive without a challenge so I pulled out the directions for this bag and decided to recreate it with a Valentine theme. I will be filling this to the brim with little things for my son's teacher aide Mrs. Carenza. She is going to die when she see's it. She's all about cute crafty things!
I used 1 piece of 12X12 designer paper by Sassafras called Sunshine Lollipop, the Sweet stamp from Sweet on You by Stampin' Up!, and some shiny chocolate ribbon from American Crafts ribbon. You can't see it but on the opposite side of the heart paper is stripes in the same color pink, a orange color, and brown color. It's some really cute paper and thick too! Anyway I hope you'll give this project a try!
