Pristine white bags just beckon to be altered with a splash of color and baker’s twine. In no time at all Guest Artist Kristen Robinson shows us how to create these tempting treat bags and the sweetest “Love Note” tags with only a handful of products.

Altering the Bags

Using a paintbrush and Studio Acrylic paint create a rectangle in the center of each bag; be sure to set the bags aside to dry. With a round brush draw a heart onto one of the bags and an X&O onto an additional bag. For a bit of variation adhere a scrap of ledger paper to the top of the remaining bag.  To the top of the ledger paper adhere one resin heart.

To complete your bags fold the tops of the bags over (about 1 inch), using a hole punch create two holes in each bag. Place bakers twine through the two holes tying it off in the center. Fill your bags with treats, goodies or notes of love.

We want to give a huge “thank you” to Kristen Robinson for stopping by Somerset Place once more to share these wonderful Valentine’s Day delights!  To view Kristen’s upcoming class schedule and explore more of her artwork and loveliness, visit her blog at: kristenrobinson.typepad.com
