Valentine Bookmarks and Treat Bags for Boys

Good Morning and Happy February!!!
We are just about half way through the winter!
Today's project is goody bags for the boys in my twins classes for Valentine's Day.

 This cute stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn was released last year at CHA 2013.  I've had it for a while but I'm finally getting a chance to play with it.  I love the new "air mail" themed paper a lot of the Valentine's collections have this year so I thought the paper airplanes would be perfect!

 I started by cutting 1 1/4" off the top of a kraft paper bag (6" x 3 1/2") with pinking shears.  Then I attached the patterned paper.  Next I stamped the two sentiments, followed by the dotted lines.  Finally I attached the planes.
To close the bag I punched two holes about an inch apart in the middle of the patterned paper strip.  I threaded red and blue hemp through the holes and tied the bow.
