DIY Valentine’s Day Goodie Bags

January 20th, 2010

I know it’s a bit early for all these Valentine’s Day posts but I can’t resist! I had so much fun creating this new bag for all of you that I just couldn’t wait to share! Plus, I wanted you to be able to have time to get bags, print, make goodies and fill with time to spare.

Inspired by all things sweet and love related, I created this little pattern and printed onto the bag directly from my Ink Jet printer. If you don’t have an Ink Jet or if your printer doesn’t allow you to print odd formats, you could always print the label onto sticker paper (found at office supply stores) and post apply it to the bag. Fill with cookies, muffins, a handmade card, or whatever it is that your special someone will enjoy. Download the file here and enjoy! xoxo

Perfect for projects like these or for other crafts and gifts the White and craft paper bags are available through my Etsy shop here in bundles of 25.

    I love these bags! I would love to download them, but when I do, the winzip file is empty….

    LOVE them, Kathleen!! You are fabulous!

    Hi Karlijn, I just tested the Zip file on my end and it seems to be working ok. You may need a program like Winzip or PKZIP to uncompress the zip. Many such programs are available for little or no cost from websites like Let me know if you still have trouble and we’ll figure out a way to get the file to you. Good luck! Kathleen

  31. lORA Says:

    Love the bags, I do not see the download for them? Another question is how do I use a PDF file in my Dip software program?


  32. Kathleen Says:

    Hi IORA, To download the file click where it reads ” Download the file here“. Secondly, I apologize but I’m not familiar with Dip Software. I recommend Adobe Acrobat and you can download free trials at

    Hope that helps and best of luck!

  38. Monica Says:

    Where do you buy the bags at? Thanks so much!

  39. Anna Says:

    I downloaded the file, but it is in PDF format. It will not convert to a jpeg or bitmap to go into my PrintMaster program so I can print out the bags.

    Could you send us a jpeg or bitmap file instead of the pdf? Many thanks. You are the best!

    I had a hard time printing these directly onto the bags. I ended up printing them on sticker paper, cutting them out and sticking them onto the bags and it worked out great!
