In case you missed my post on A Blissful Nest where I shared my DIY Valentine’s Day treat bags for the little sweeties in your life I’m posting the tutorial for you here. I love this DIY project because these little bags are not only easy to make, but you can customize them with your favorite color combination (with supplies you already have on hand) and sweets to add your Valentine’s Day a little EXTRAORDINARY!
- Small clear cellophane bags
- Variety of pattered and solid scrapbook paper
- Embellishments (ribbon, twine, washi tape, hearts, ect.)
- Staples and glue dots
- Special Valentine’s Day treat
Make your special treat (I made rice krispie treats) and cut them out using a heart shaped cookie cutter
Cut a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of scrapbook paper
Next, cut the topper for you bag to 3 x3.75. Embellish your bag topper with ribbon, twine, washi tape and hearts.
Slide your patterned paper into the bag and put your special Valentine’s Day treat inside the bag. Now, staple the bag topper to the clear cellophane bag.
*Note: I only stapled the back part of the topper to the bag because I didn’t want the staples to show through on the front and mess up my pretty toppers. After I stapled the back I folded over the front of the topper and used glue dots to secure it.
Spread the love and hand out pretty little Valentine’s Day treats bags to co-workers, friends and neighbors or slip them in your kids lunch for an extra special surprise!
