The VIC Pictorial: A vintage Valentine bag that is plain AND fancy!
January 24, 2011

Issue #73 - As promised, here is a quick Special Edition of The VIC Pictorial for Valentine's Day. You may be planning a little Valentine gift for your sweetie, or even whole batch of treats for the folks at the office.

But how can you wrap it all up in charming vintage fashion?

Martin had an idea to dress up a plain, brown paper lunch bag until its own mother wouldn't recognize it. And he did! We are proud to give you the complete instructions, the charming vintage images, and even the aged gift tag as our Valentine's Day gift!

Let's get crafting...

The ingredients are few: A brown paper lunch bag, some card stock, some ribbon and your favorite decorative-edge scissors and hole punches. The finished recipe is adorable.
