Valentine’s Day is a time to show those we are closest to how much we love and appreciate them. What better way to show the love than with a handmade goodie bag for all those treats we want to lavish on them.
You can easily personalize this bag with your valentine’s initials and her favorite colors. The bonus is the inexpensive cost and quick construction.
