How To Make DIY Monogrammed Valentine Gift Bags
Our supply list tells you this is a fun craft!
- White paper gift bags (like these)
- Several sheets of decorative craft paper
- Pom Pom trim (found in the fabric department)
- Pacon Dazzle Self Adhesive letters (Hobby Lobby)
- Sewing bias tape (fabric department)
- Sewing Ric Rac ribbon (fabric department)
- E6000 Glue
- Elmer’s Glue
- Glue Stick
First, measure, mark and cut your craft paper according to the size you want on your gift bag.
The craft paper adds a pretty touch to the front of the bag but it also creates a pocket for a card to be inserted.
Next, measure and cut the bias tape trim. It will secure easily using Elmer’s glue. The bias tape just slips right over the edge of the paper so a light bead of glue along the both sides will suffice.
If you are using the ric rac ribbon, you can glue that on at this time.
Now we will add the pom pom fringe to the top edge of the bag for some flair. I used E6000 because it holds quite well and the pom pom fabric requires a good glue.
I’m sure you also keep clothespins and paper clips in your crafting area. They work great for holding anything in place while the glue dries.
Add a bead of Elmer’s glue around the edges of your paper, turn it over and carefully place it onto the bag. Press the edges down firmly to secure. Allow the glue to dry.
The Pacon Dazzle Self Adhesive letters I found at Hobby Lobby are very easy to use. Determine your placement, dab the back with a glue stick and press down! Such an easy monogram!
I love having the little card pocket on the front of the bag. I tucked in one of our Free Printable Valentine’s Cards which you can find here.

Very fun idea. Thanks for the inspiration.
So adorable. Absolutely great for parties
Cute, cute work! This is something that I do throughout the year. Love all the detail you added!
The brain is the dullest and most ignorant thing when faced with love. It is there that the heart shines and figures out what to do.
Love this! This is a great idea for a Valentines Day party.
Love that it is personalized and has those little pom pom’s .
So cute! Our youngest has to make a Valentine bag for school. Thanks for the idea and instructions.
So cute, yet so simple!!
Oooh, these are super cute!! I love them!
Those gift bags are so lovely. I’d love to try to make one. Thanks for posting!

I love the idea of the personalized bags and the pom poms make it especially fun!
I really love these. The added pom poms make these bags stand out!

I love this gift bag idea it’s personal and would be a fun craft to do with my kiddos. Thank you for sharing.
This is so nice! I’m always leary to monogram something I’ve made, but on paper it is so doable, and sure packs a wallop for the buck! I’m excited to try it! They may like the bag more than the gift!
how very unique and clever. Thanks, for the ideas.
These are great valentine’s day gift bags.
I never would have thought to decorate paper bags with fabric. It turned out so cute! The tassles just top them off perfectly. 🙂
A little personalization makes a gift so much more special. Thanks for the ideas.
Such an awesome idea. I will give it a go, thank you.
The little card pockets on the side are a great idea. They would protect the little cards from getting damaged from the gift inside the bag. I never thought of having plain white bags handy, I am going to go grab some right away. I always have craft paper and I own a Silhouette, so its easy to make something up fun.
thanks for the idea.
I would love to try this out
The pom pom trim is a super cute touch!
Beautiful & cute bags
These bags are gorgeous. I love that you go the extra mile and make personalized bags.
beautiful crafted bags.. let me try this..
As I sit holding a squirmy toddler who’s been up since 5am and just spilled yet another bowl of food from grabbing it off the dining table I know I can’t do this at this stage of life. But they’re pretty!
These bags are prettier than most you can buy. I’m going to try to decorate my own.
I love the addition of the pom poms. We are big fans of anything pom poms. Once again, this is such a creative idea. The little front pocket is a great addition for holding cards.
Oh Shirley I love the little pom poms!! That is so cute! I keep a stash of those white bags for to slip little gifts in and I am going to be on the look out for some of those little pom poms now! So, so cute!! Hope you are having a great week!
I like that the bags have a monogram for a personalized touch.
The pom-pom trim adds a beautiful touch to your monogrammed bags. I love the idea of personalizing a gift even more by taking the time to personalize the gift bag. I would definitely keep a bag like that. No way would it get disposed of. So cute!
Pom poms are so IN right now! Even my little 8 year old granddaughter loves them. I thought of her when I was planning this craft project. These are so fun to make. I had to stop myself from making too many.
