Easy Valentine Treat Bags

Like most crafters, I have lots and lots of supplies. And like most scrapbookers, I have lots and lots of paper. And like most seamstresses, I have lots and lots of fabric. Sound familiar? So what’s a girl to do with all those leftover supplies and pieces of scrapbook? Make another craft…of course!

Earlier this week I shared How to make Paper Hearts…did you see them? After making 12 or 13 of them, I had quite a bit of scrapbook paper left over, so I set out to make some really easy, super adorable…Valentine Treat Bags to share with you!

I think these would be perfect for classroom treats, teacher gifts, neighbors,friends, family or even your Sweetheart! Like I said, they are really easy and with the exception of possibly 2 supplies, I bet you have everything else in your crafting stash!

I’m sharing lots of visuals again, I hope you don’t mind! Let’s get started…

Valentine Treat Bag Supplies

  • Hershey’s Miniature Candy Bars – 1 bag makes 6 treats bag with 6 pieces of candy in each bag {you may have a few leftover, those are for you to nibble on while working}
  • Scrapbook Paper
  • Wilton Pretzel Bags
  • Ribbon
  • Straight Edge Cutter
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Ruler

Step 1

  • Cut strips of paper 1 + 3/8 inch wide – any length is fine for now, 12 inch scrapbook paper works the best

Step 2

  • Lay 2 or 3 strips of paper together, making sure they are even
  • Cut them 3 inches long. Cutting them together saves a lot of time

Now you have lots of pieces of paper ready to use

Step 3

  • Cut small pieces of tape and have them ready to go {this saved a lot of time as well}

Step 4

  • Tape a piece of paper to the center of the back of the candy

Step 5

  • Wrap the paper around the candy and secure with another piece of tape

Love the colors! I think I need to add this photo to my Pink Parade Pinterest Board!

Step 6

Step 7

  • Place the candy in the pretzel bags, close up with the twist tie {I got them in half}
  • Then make a hole in the tag with scissors or a hole punch, attach with twine, thread or ribbon {whatever you have on hand}
  • Tie on the ribbon

Now it’s time to brighten someone’s day and give them a special treat!

Remember, these gift tags can also be used as Valentine Cupcake Toppers. You can get them FREE in the Cupcake Chronicles Newsletter, read all about it and subscribe HERE!

Oh and in case you don’t want to put the Valentine Miniatures in a bag for gifts, they look pretty cute in a heart shaped dish as well!
