Paper Bag Valentine Satchel
We've no shortage of paper bags around here, but I must admit, I was stumped for a while on what to do with them. But with Valentine's Day coming up, my daughter S and I thought it would be fun to make a purse (or "a satchel", which is what I called it for my son H), to transport Valentine cards to school for her friends.
We started by cutting the bottom off the bag so it would lay flat. I left it folded over, and drew a large heart on half of the bag, ending at the fold on the bottom. I placed dots on the heart so S would know where to punch the holes.
