Make the bag as sweet as the treat with these playful DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bags!
I’m not sure how it happened, but Valentine’s Day has become one of my favorite holidays! I love creating cute décor from heart tassel garland to festive pillows. With my twins in pre-school I now get to send them with sweets and treats to pass out to their classmates during holidays. I feel like I have been waiting to do this all my life!!!
With Christmas being officially over and Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to get a head start on the goody bags for my kids’ classmates. I wanted to create something simple, yet cute. When I saw the heart carved tree stamp from Rubberstamps.com. I wanted it to be the focal point of my treat bags since it’s so darn cute! I also used their “Happy Valentine’s Day” stamps to add even more detail! Check out the full video tutorial below to see how simple it is to make your own DIY stamped Valentine’s Day treat bags!
