No Sew Faux Cross Stitched Valentine's Gift Bags!

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!
