    Start by cutting out a small square that is approximately 2 inches by 2 inches out of the foil gift wrap. Depending on the size of your paper bag it might be necessary to use a larger or smaller square so that the heart will fit on the front of the bag.

    Fold the foil gift wrap square in half without forming a hard crease in the middle. To do this lightly press two opposite sides together using two fingertips to hold the sides together.

    With your hand that is not holding the folded square of gift wrap cut out a half of a heart shape. Repeat this process so that you have one foil heart per paper bag.

    Flip over a foil paper heart and apply glue stick around the exterior edge of the heart. Position the heart over the middle of the front side of the bag and press down on the foil heart starting from the center pushing outwards to remove all wrinkles or air bubbles until the foil heart is perfectly glued on the bag. 

    Repeat the process of gluing the foil hearts to the front of all the paper bags.

    Fill your decorated bags with small candies, wrapped chocolates or even a few cookies for an easy Valentine's Day gift to give your children or your friends this year. 

    If you need to transport the bags a far distance you might find it easier if you seal shut the bags by applying a small piece of clear tape to shut the top of the bag.
