Valentine's Day Bags

Who knew a paper shredder could come in handy for craft projects?!  I just love the look of shredded sheet music and I have used it in a number of projects.  I decided to use it for these sweet Valentine's Day bags too.
First I printed off the images from The Graphics Fairy.  I used my Cricut to cut them into circles.  Then I used some Sticky Dots paper to make them into stickers.  Place them towards the bottom of the bag and then start stuffing in your sheet music.
I fill them as close to the top as possible and then tie them up with some twine. 
Then I made some of these Chocolat glassine bags using some clear Avery label paper.  It's hard to see but there is pink, faux pearl embellishment on the top.  I just love the look of glassine bags!  These are for sale in my Etsy shop.

Hi Jeanine! Those glassine bags are so sweet! About a year ago I bought a shredder only to do crafts with! The one we had only did a cross-cut and that just would not work :)
So I totally get the idea of using a paper shredder for crafts!
