Valentine treat boxes

A girlfriend of mine who works for Hallmark came over today.  I always tease her that my cards are better than hers.  She brought with her a bunch of leftover envelopes, and we made bag-alopes.

This are made from pink envelopes.  We embossed them with an embossing folder my mother gave me years back, and ran red ink over them.  a heart punch was used to make little tags, and we closed them by folding over the top, punching two holes, and running ribbon through.  These were practically free to make, as we didn't pay for the envelopes, and the tags were punched from scraps (after making so many valentines, I have a few red scraps!)
