How to make a Valentine’s Day gift bag with a secret pocket
1. Cut out a heart-shaped piece of felt
Start making your DIY gift bag by cutting out a heart-shaped piece of felt for the secret pocket. The easiest way to do this is to fold your felt in half and draw half a heart on one side.
Then cut it out, open it up and you’ll have a perfectly symmetrical heart!
2. Stick the red heart on your gift bag
Next, stick the red felt heart on your hessian gift bag. To do this, you’ll need a pack of VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics Tape.
Stick the hook side (the scratchy side) on the felt heart first and then stick the loop side (the soft side) on top.
Then peel off the backing paper and attach your heart to your hessian gift bag. At this stage, we’d recommend leaving it for half an hour to give the adhesive time to set.
3. Put a Valentine’s Day card in the secret pocket
Last but not least, put a Valentine’s Day present in your homemade gift bag and put a card in the secret pocket! This Valentine’s Day craft idea is so easy yet so adorable – we’re sure your Valentine will love it!
