Every Friday...stop by for the "Pinterest Party Challenge" 
You can link up posts related to a Pinterest inspired tutorial, recipes, projects, ect. Basically something you love, found on Pinterest that you want to make.

NEW...I opened an ongoing party for you to join too. I made a board on Pinterest strictly for my Top To Do Projects. It's called My Pinterest Bucket List. I even included an image for you to download and use. Read more about it HERE or find it in my Top Bar below the header on the right. There only one rule. ;-) Please leave a comment below the party so I know there is a new bucket list to check out!

I found a cool {PIN}spiration on printing on paper bags. It gave me an idea for some valentines. Check out how I made mine below the link party.
Can't wait to see your links. Have fun!

DIY Vintage Valentines
Remember I got my {PIN}spiration HERE.
I love the idea of printing on paper bags and am going to remember that for future projects and gifts. But it did give me a great idea for making valentines this year.

...What you will need...
Brown Paper Bags (Large from the grocery store)
Scrapbook Paper
Computer and Printer
Vintage Valentine Images
Decorative Scissors

First, cut your paper bag to fit your printer. I cut mine to 8x10. You can always go larger by taking your images to a printing shop.
Below is the image I made up in PS. 
Feel free to save it and use for personal use only. Thank you.
Once you have it saved, print it out on your paper bag. Cut each image out with decorative scissors.
Then just glue your cut images onto some cute scrapbook paper. Fill in your message on the back and they are ready to give.
These will be cute to hand out and are so quick to make!


  1. HOW A.DOR.A.BLE!!!! I am still working on LAST weeks project. Hope to get it done so I can link up. Eesh. It will be pretty. Just lots of "life stuff" crimping my crafting time. Cant wait to show this to my daughter- she loves Vintage Valentines. (me too!)

  2. Ugh. so sorry, I'm one of those people who did not read the directions! Please delete my collage upload. Thank you so much!
