Valentine Envies almost there!

Man, my Monday flew by and I'm sort of hoping the rest of the week goes by as quickly too.  However, I hope I can have a productive week at the same time.  Is that asking to much?  :)

So last week, I posted on Wednesday about my new pink bags I picked up at Michaels.  I made a little bit of progress on them...

I took plain manila tags and covered them with Valentine cardstock.  Then punched out a round tab punch and folded it over to cover up the hole.

I only covered one side of the tag.

The manila tag fits perfectly inside the mini bag!!!

Here's the back of it. 

 Now I originally saw an idea on Pinterest where they took the mini bags and decorated the fronts with all sorts of cute Valentiney embellishments.  In one of my many late night crafting "thinking sessions" I came up with the idea of the manila tags.  So I made 14 and on each day, the girls can pull out a tag and read a little love note from mom and dad :)

I'm going to post my workdesk tomorrow but I'll have the finished envies up on Thursday.  I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and I'll see you tomorrow!  Thanks for stopping by today!
