Hi everyone, it's Jess from Everyday Party Magazine. I am so excited to share this ADORABLE Valentine’s Day Treat! My little niece is just starting pre-school, and wants to take all of her new friends a sweet Valentine’s Day Treat. Of course, she asked her Aunt Bunny to help her, and of course I happily said yes!
We pulled out my paper stash and some of my favorite Sizzix Dies. Little Miss also really loves candy, so we wanted to include candy in her treats. I suggested that we make Sizzix Pocket Heart and add Tim Holtz's new Billboard Alphabet Letters to create conversation heart packages. We bagged up some loose conversation hearts in cello bags and tied them with pink Baker’s Twine. It was a simple project to make, and we made a dozen for her new friends! Below are the supplies you will need for this project:
- Big Shot Machine
- Cutting Pads
- Sizzix Bigz XL Alphabet Die - Billboard by Tim Holtz
- Sizzix Bigz Die - Pocket, Heart
- Sizzix Paper Mini Celebrations
Other Materials Used:
- Conversation Hearts
- Xyron Sticker Maker
- Cello Bags
- Hot Glue and Glue Gun
The little one and I dug through my craft stash and got busy. I started by cutting one 2 pocket hearts for each treat bag out of Sizzix paper. I used the Sizzix Sandwich Method; Cutting Pad, Die, Paper, Cutting Pad, and ran it through my Big Shot. It was so simple, my niece did most of the work!
Once I had each one cut, we decided what we wanted each heart to say. Then, using more paper from my supply cabinet, we cut out quotes for each heart using the Tim Holtz Alphabet Die. Once each one was cut, we ran the letters through the Xyron Sticker maker and applied them to the hearts. It was a good way for my niece to work on her spelling and reading too.
Finally, we hot glued the tabs of the hearts together with hot glue and they were ready to be filled. My niece worked on her counting, and counted out 20 conversation hearts for each cello bag. I tied all the bags with Baker’s Twine, and stuck them in the little hearts. I love the way they turned out! And I love how easy they were to make!
I hope I have inspired you to make an adorable Valentine’s Day Treats for all of your little loves!
