Easy Valentine Treat Bags

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

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
  • Printable Valentine Tags

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

  • Now it’s time to assemble the Valentine Treat Bags. I laid mine out so they would all be different.
  • If you would like the Valentine tags, they are FREE 
  • They can also be used as Valentine Cupcake Toppers

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.

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!
