Why hello there!
After I posted my Valentine Snack Mix last week, I got several requests for a tutorial on how I made the little treat bag. Funny thing, I made it in all of 5 minutes! I was in the middle of shooting the photos of the snack mix and it just wasn’t coming together the way I wanted. So, I quickly brainstormed & scoured the house for supplies and came up with the little bag you see above. A super-duper-wooper (V’s new phrase when she’s describing something spectacular ;) easy Valentine treat bag.
And here’s how you can put it all together to hold your Valentine treats in 10 easy steps!
- scalloped edged scissors
- regular scissors
- washi tape
- baker’s twine
- double stick tape
- wooden heart buttons
- kraft paper small treat bags
- Cut the top off of your bag to the desired length with the regular scissors.
- Trim all the cut edges off of both pieces with your scalloped scissors.
- Wrap washi tape all the way around the trimmed off piece.
- Add double stick tape to all of the interior edges of this piece.
- Place piece over & around the bag.
- Pat down & secure tape onto bag.
- Thread button with twine.
- Knot twine on back of button to shift the button straight & secure it.
- Tie twine around bag and knot it.
- Trim knot.
- Voilà, a pretty little treat bag, super-duper-wooper easy :)
- Add your Valentine Snack Mix!
