It's time for Craft Lightning Valentine's edition!
All week my Designer friends have been posting 15 minute Valentine’s Day crafts with our hostess Country Chic Cottage and for this series, co-hosted with 30 Minute Crafts and 100 Directions. There are a ton of blogs joining in this series and you can see their 15 minute crafts at the bottom of each hosts' blog post!
I have lots of co-workers that I always give homemade gifts to on Valentine's Day and I needed a quick, but cute gift bag. Scrap gingham fabric and Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint to the rescue! I love when I can craft from my stash!
Here's what you will need: Tombow USA MONO Multi Liquid Glue; Tulip Slick Dimesional Fabric Paint in True Red and Black; Gingham Fabric; Ribbon; Buttons; Pinking Shears; Ruler; Pencil; Scraps of Paper and Non-Stick Craft Sheet.
Measure and cut rectangles with pinking shears. I wanted my heart to be located in the center, so I created rectangles that are 11 squares wide by 36 squares long. The dimensions carry through no matter what size gingham you are using.
Run a line of Tombow USA MONO Multi Liquid glue along the long edges, fold in half on a non-stick craft sheet and tap gently to adhere. Let dry.
Insert a small piece of paper inside the bag, then starting with the bottom center square, draw X's in the squares with Tulip Slick Dimensional Fabric Paint. Use the photo above as a guide. Let dry.
Draw dashes along both edges. Draw X's and O's above the heart. Let dry.
Fill gift bag with your favorite goodies, then tie with a ribbon bow threaded through a button for a bit of whimsy!
