The Pin Junkie: Valentine Treat Bags

Valentine Treat Bags Easy DIY

Make Valentine treats extra special with these pretty Valentine treat bags!

Just cut two pieces of coordinating paper.  Both pieces should be 11 inches long.  One is 4 inches wide and the other is 3 inches wide.  Center the narrow paper strip on the wider strip and glue together.

 Turn the paper over and mark these measurements.  I marked it lightly with a pencil.  (This is the inside and no one will see it.)  Then fold on these lines.  I like to use a scoring tool and a ruler to get crisp folds.

Fill a bag with your favorite candy and place inside. ( I used Hershey's kisses.)
 Fold the paper and staple it shut.  I made sure I stapled the bag of candy too so it wouldn't fall out.

I found these pretty paper roses at Michael's in the dollar section and had to have them.
Aren't they sweet?

 They work really well at covering up that ugly staple!
