How to make your Valentine's Day gift bag
1. Cut out a heart-shaped piece of felt
The easiest way to do this is to fold your felt in half and draw half a heart on one side.
Then cut it out, open it up and it'll be perfectly symmetrical!
2. Stick the red heart on your gift bag
To do this, you'll need a pack of VELCRO® Brand Stick On for Fabrics Tape.
You'll need two long pieces and two short pieces. Stick the hook side (the scratchy side) down onto the felt heart first and then stick the loop side (the soft side) on top.
Then peel off the backing paper and attach your heart to your hessian gift bag. At this stage, we'd recommend leaving it for half an hour to give the adhesive time to set.
3. Pop a Valentine's Day card in the secret pocket
Last but not least, put your Valentine's Day present in your homemade gift bag and put a card in the secret pocket! This Valentine's Day craft idea is so easy yet so adorable - we're sure your Valentine will love it!
