Valentine Mini Bags
The Price is Right
These were a great price. I usually buy them (for an ongoing marketing campaign) in the wedding aisle of my local craft store, but these were considerably cheaper. However, the one thing that I disliked about them was the fact that there is a tag sewn into the side seam of each baggie. This interferes with the look I'm going for. (The ones I buy at the craft store don't have any tags.) If you don't mind the tags, or are willing to clip each one off, then these are the way to go. These are also a bit smaller than the ones I get at the craft store, but they still serve my purpose well. Overall, I'm quite pleased with them.

EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!
I have to admit, these little bags surprised me! There are 2 reasons I didn't give them 5 stars. First, the white tags (which other buyers have mentioned) are pretty large, and of course stick out. I didn't cut them like another person had (that would have left a white strip that still stands out), I ripped them out, and pulled the little white remainders off with my fingers. I tried it on the first one, and was amazed to see it didn't unravel in my fingers. They are much stronger than you would think. I did this on all 96 of my bags, with the sewing becoming slightly loose (but nowhere near noticeable) on a handful of them. My second reason is that they vary in size, sometimes dramatically. When I say dramatically, it was about a good 3/4"-1" difference at times. So if you're counting on the measurements stated, your items will not fit. I purchased the glass hearts to be put in these bags, and there were a few that barely fit inside, whereas others were practically swimming inside the larger ones. It was almost comical how small and tiny some could be. Other than those few issues, these bags truly are very nice, much better quality than I thought, and generally stronger than one might think. I use these for marketing, so that's why I tend to be picky about my comments, but, it's also just nice to know EXACTLY what you're getting. So if I can help someone else to know what they are purchasing, well then, I've done what I set out to do. I hope this is useful information for other buyers. Thank You!

useful bags, just what I needed
The white label inside was comparatively huge & had to be tediously snipped out of all 48 of these tiny bags, the bags themselves were good overall. Another drawback was that some drawstrings were intertwined, making it hard to open & close the bag. Again tho, good buy.

Smaller than had hoped...
These bags are adorable and perfect for small treats or favors. They were smaller than I had hoped for, and so I won't be able to use them for what I had ordered them for. However, I know I can find a great use for these cute bags. I will have to cut out the tags first though.

Cute, but the tag is not
I had purchased other bags from other sources before, but since I was placing an order already, thought I would try these out. They are OK, Not all sewing is done well. The most frustrating part was dealing with the tag that each one had sewn into the seam. Not wanting this large tag ruin the appearance of my finished product, I flipped the bag open and cut away as much tag as I could without damaging the product. This still left a bit showing and took time to do.In the future Iwould go with a bag without tags.
