Valentine’s Day is right around the corner….okay so still a month away but still! I thought I would share some fabulous treats with you that are quick and simple for you to make up for kid’s classrooms, neighbors, nieces and nephews, friends, or random people you see the week of Valentine’s Day! 🙂
This is your traditional treat bag using a 4″ x 6″ Cellophane Bag! I used some of the Stacked with Love Washi Tape to decorate the bag. I overlapped the ends on the back of the bag in the same spot as the seam of the bag. For the Topper, I used a piece of Real Red Cardstock measuring 4-1/4″ x 4″ and punched the bottom of the front with my Scallop Border Punch! Then I stamped the front with a To/From stamp in Real Red Ink. The one I used was from the Wondrous Wreath Stamp Set which is still available from the Holiday Mini Catalog!! Then I folded the piece of cardstock over the top of the bag and stapled it closed. Then I decided I didn’t like the staples showing so I added the Gold Ribbon which looks amazing so I’m glad I added it! If you like the staple took, you can leave the ribbon off or just place it lower. In one of my classes, I had a stamper staple on top of her ribbon so that is an option as well! I finished it off with a few hearts punched out with the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and some Gold Glitter Paper!
This little treat box is perfect for oddly shaped candy or other treats or if you wish to keep it a surprise! I started with the Tiny Treat Boxes which have also been held over from the Holiday Mini Catalog! Before assembling the box, I stamped the So Sweet greeting from the Hello Life Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog! I stamped it to wrap around to left. When we did this box in a stamp class, many of the stampers stamped either the entire greeting again on the back 2 sides or stamped just the curvy end on the other 2 sides! Then I added a little strip of Stacked with Love Washi Tape. After handling the box and showing it off at classes I realized that it started to curl on the corner so I would suggest wrapping the Washi Tape all the way around or at least around the corner to the side and not on the corner! I finished it off with some Real Red Cotton Ribbon! I love how that bow looks! Adorable!
Let me know what you think about these treats and what you plan on creating for your Valentine’s Day Treats in the comments below! I would love to hear your plans!
