Niklas made this brown bag Valentine carrier at our local library when his sister was at school. I was rather surprised to see that he has the patience to loop the yarn through the paper punch holes all by himself. Maybe we did too many craft projects lately. He kind of lost interest in the “gluing & pasting” decoration part of the craft project. So, I had to
force encourage and help him to decorate his Valentine carrier with paper doilies and heart cutouts. When we were finally done with the craft, he was quite proud of it and insisted on wearing the carrier like it was a necklace! Haha! *smile*

1. Trace & cut a heart shape out of a brown bag. You will have a pair of heart cutouts.
2. Use a paper punch and punch holes into the two valentine hearts.
3. Loop yarn or ribbon in the holes you punched and tie a knot at the end of the yarn after you have looped each holes.
4. Finally, decorate your Valentine carrier with paper doilies or heart cut outs.
