Last Minute Valentine Ideas

Hello! Today I have some last minute photographs of the last of my Valentine Treat Holders to show you. The few pictures show a heart paper mache box, that I decorated for Valentine's. I had these boxes left over from my daughter's wedding over a year ago. I simply covered them with designer paper, added ribbon and pom pom trim, and a prima flower. The designer paper is Bo Bunny.

Now for those of you who don't want to go through so much work to make treat holders for your child's classmates, the pictures below take minutes to make. You simply dump the candy in a little baggie ( I got mine in the beading department of JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts), then put a small strip of Designer Paper around the bag and staple it. I use a Spellbinder's Nestability to cut out an interesting shape of a different designer paper, fold it half and glue it to the top of the bag. From there I just add sentiments, tags, embellies, whatever is left in my stash.

Have a Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Amy


  1. Great gifts - we do not 'do' Valentines here as much as you do - although the shops are trying to sell it. These are sweet wee gifts, and i love the pink and brown combinations.

  2. Wow! Those heart boxes are stunning! The gift treats are wonderful too.

  3. WOW!! Love the gorgeous heart boxes Amy!! Fun Valentine projects! TFS! HUGS
