Valentines Countdown!

Hi Everyone! Something to brighten up your Monday blues is a fun countdown project that is up on the Doodlebug Blog today! The Sweethearts collection is so super cute, and I fell in love with the Kraft Bags! Yep, as much as I loved them, I knew I wanted to embrace these sweet bags on my Valentine's Countdown. I started with a Blank Canvas that I have been meaning to use for some time. It was the perfect size to fit 5 bags across.

To start off, I cut the doilies in half and modge podged them around the border of the canvas. Next I used the washi tape in two designs on the outer edges of the canvas (and to cover up any imperfections)! I LOVE that Doodlebug has come out with a new smaller size! I am in love with the XOXOX tape! I then layered some punched out hearts on top of the white doilies to add some more color.



I then cut several rectangles to just give the Kraft Bags a bit of a border. I made sure to use my hot glue gun to adhere them to the canvas. Finally the fun part! Decorating each little bag! I layered each bag with Doodlebug goodies- from Doodlepops to stickers to Pixie Sticks! The combinations were endless with such fun embellishments in this collection!







Lastly,  I decided to create some tags, which I cut out with Lily White Cardstock. I then added some washi tape at the top for some punch of color.On the tags will be little Love Notes for my kids and I might just slide some heart lollipops in there too!



Thanks for letting me share some "sweetness" with you today!

Here is the final Product:
