DIY: Simple Valentine’s Day Gift Idea

Valentine’s day, as we age, the simplistic day becomes more commercialized to loving couples (nothing wrong with that). But remember as kids in grammar school how excited we all got! Buying cute cards and candy for the whole class and making paper heart valentines by hand. Truly  hand-making almost each valentine.  Also everyone got one, what was not to love about that. Now that we are older  you lose that innocence with a valentine and it has gotten more intimate. Why not bring back those memories and give out valentines to your friends! So here is a very simple treat bag to hand out to your loveable friends, cause that is  what Valentines day is about, a little sugar for those you consider close to your heart.

Things I used:

– pink paper bags

– glitter glue pens

– assorted scrapbooking items

– ribbon

– my selection of candy

I decided every bag would look different and personalize each one 🙂 So feel free to go crazy with the decorations! Also my choice in candies were purely selfish (hey I am always down for some candy). Very simple idea , just decorate to your liking add candy and close with ribbon on top. I made 7 Valentine Treat Bags for around 30! The bulk was the candy.  The bags and glitter pens and stickers I bought at target for around a dollar each item. If this is a belated Valentines present I expect the candy to be  loads cheaper (day after). I should show you more of the end result, I think they capture the hand made aspect quite well!

Enjoy making it! I am positive it will bring joy to your friends 🙂
