Cute Valentine's Gift for Boyfriend or Husband

Do you need a valentine's day card for the man in your life?  If so, here is a cute valentines gift for your boyfriend or husband.  It is a masculine styled handmade paper bag card.  I used brown colored papers and actual playing cards.

Sometimes, it is hard to come up with masculine embellishments especially if you are used to working with lace and flowers all the time.

Some ideas for masculine embellishments are:

Cardboard pieces
twine
package tags
plain wooden buttons
playing cards
newspaper

What I used for this project:

A paper bag
Glitz paper stack
BoBunny's "Going Places"  This is a great stack to use for men
Playing Cards
Cream card stock
brown seam binding to cover the crease of the bag

Happy Valentines Day!!!

God bless, Chan



I used buttons to resemble poker chips at the casino.


I made little tags out of  playing cards and added card stock to the back of them for journaling.


I made larger tags for the open end of the paper bag.  For the charms, I cut out little circles from the playing cards.

Here, I used a striped brown and cream paper to provide some contrast to this neutral color scheme.
