Raise your hands if you love paper treat bags! {My hand is raised} Today I’ve come up with a few ideas to help you jazz up those adorable little bags for your upcoming Valentine’s Day treats. Not just one way to decorate your treat bags but for adorable ways: Chevron & Lace, Polkadot & Rosette, I love Twine, and Washi tape treat bags.

Special thank you to Waiting on Martha for the treat bags, twine & washi tape.

 Chevron & Lace Treat Bags

You will need:

Treat bags:  Waiting on Martha || Lace Doilies: Target’s Dollar Section || Martha Stewart Scrapbook paper, Heart Punch and glue gun: Michael’s Craft Store 

Directions:

You will need 5 doilies. Take one doilie and fold in half. Fold again in half and place a drop of glue on it so that the doilie remains in triangle form. Continue to make 3 more triangle doilies. Glue all for triangle doilies onto the 5th doilie to form the ruffled lace circle above. Then finish with a heart punched from scrapbook paper. I picked glittery paper in latest Martha Stewart Valentine’s Day Scrapbook paper pack.

These treat bags were inspired by the adorable party from Frog Prince Paperie, I just love how she used the doilie rosettes.

Polka dot & Rosette Treat Bags

You will need:

Treat bags:  Waiting on Martha ||  Martha Stewart Scrapbook paper,  Scoring Board & Round and Heart Punch, craft scissors and glue gun: Michael’s Craft Store 

Directions:

Take a blank piece of paper and punch out a 2″ circle and set aside. Pick out your favorite sheet of scrapbook paper and place it on your scoring board. Score a 1.5 inch line down and cut it out with your favorite craft scissors. These are my favorite craft scissors, I love the little design it makes when turned into a rosette. Once you have your 1.5 inch strip of paper, lay it horizontally on the scoring board and begin to score .5 inch lines all the way down the strip. Once you are done fold up the paper into an accordion then open it back up. Here’s the tricky part, glue your two ends together and push the paper down on one side to form the rosette. Glue the rosette down onto the round piece of paper that you punched out and set aside. Finally, punch out your heart and glue it to the rosette and now you are ready to glue the rosette to your bag and fill with treats.

I love Twine Treat Bags

You will need:

Treat bags:  Waiting on Martha || Sewing Kit: Target, craft section || Twine: Waiting on Martha

Directions:

Open your sewing box and pull out the needle, your favorite design and scoring tool. Using a ruler, score a line across the treat bag. Thread the needle included in the box with your baker’s twine. Begin sewing your bag and finish it off with a twine yarn ball &  a glittery paper heart.

Washi Tape Glassine Treat Bags

You will need:

Treat bags & Washi Tape:  Waiting on Martha || Mini Glittered Clothing Pins: Michael’s Craft Store 

Directions:

Grab your favorite tape and use a ruler to make sure you are applying it straight on your glassine bag. Alternate washi tape designs and finish off with an adorable glittered pin.

Happy Crafting.

xoxo – Dina
